Teachout, Queenan, and Necessary Philistines

Terry Teachout responds to Joe Queenan's article on modern music.

I wrote on the original Queenan article and echoed his comments. I'm not much of a Stravinsky fan but would have to agree with Teachout that such broadbrush criticisms are always too easy to make and too hard to defend.
Though I found Johnson's New History of Art a great read.
Thanks for posting.
I consider myself justifiably admonished.

No admonishment intended. I just thought it was an interesting exchange between two bright people.
