A musical apology

A podcast about classical music provoked thought about my own listening habits. These days I like classical music, including a lot of opera, and not much else. But usually I play it while I'm doing something else. Lose five Barenboim Points. Also, occasionally I rebel against my own good taste and binge on something like this. Although my relationship with music is hardly out of the ordinary, nonetheless I feel there is something inexplicable about it. Probably because it's not possible for me to give music the time or attention which it deserves. I choose not to make more space for it than I currently give it, because I am not willing to sacrifice other things for it. Sorry, music.
