Even a Radiohead fan can appreciate Mozart - The Boston Globe
So don’t treat classical music as a once-a-year excuse to dress up and get a nice dinner. It is music. It’s meant to be loved by the young, hormone-crazed masses, loved the very same way we love Radiohead and the Arcade Fire.

There’s a galaxy of music in our city that needs our love, and I know we’ve got it in us.
