A discussion on erudite music vs. non-erudite contemporary music is (would still be) interesting today. Can computer music, for example, ever become erudite computer music? Or was it "erudite" from the inset...? Computers and music software are ubiquitous and the discussion seems more than ever necessary. I will probably return to it sometime. In brief, does the expression "erudite music" equals lesser known or even obscure music? Or is "erudite music" simply a construction geared towards keeping other musics (even a few quite erudite ones...) out of the "erudite" realm. Or is the expression simply a way of encouraging, legitimating and promoting the "iconoclastic" behavior of people like André Rieu, the Three Tenors and others...?
