    A hundred years hence...

    ...What will "classical music" sounds like in one hundred years hence. Will people be listening to classical music? What will they consider "classical music"? Will Mozart still be enjoyed by many? Haydn? Cage? Beethoven?

    What will be listen to and what will be forgotten?

    What do you think?

    I believe most of what we regard as classical music will still be around in a hundred years. Composers go in and out of fashion and always have done but most of it will survive. Jazz is a different kettle of fish but again the oldest music is still there and still being played and listened to so why would we reject it. There are still plenty of people who rebuild and build all the old instruments which help keep the older music around for us. I can never imagine Bach going out of fashion, at least not while I am around

    Bösendorfer of Vienna built a carbon-fiber "bodied" grand piano a decade ago...There are carbon-fiber Alpenhorns, cellos, double-basses, violas, violins and I've even seen a carbon-fiber sousaphone - Don't know how that would sound though...Oh yes, carbon-fiber has been used to build lots of musical instruments.

    JSBach's music will live on in Eternity exactly because it is music that glorifies the Creator of us all...

    Why stop at Iridium? A Tungsten Carbide flute would be an almost indestructible treat...

    And, as for a Double-Bass...Build it with Lignum Vitae(densest, hardest, heaviest wood yet known...a brick size piece will weigh around 50 lbs) - It'll break your back if you try to lift it but the sound it'd make........

    Tungsten Carbide hey, interesting- so when your finished blowing it could double as an industrial cutting implement. Want to watch out for the sharp edges on the lips thou!

    CD, you have some very good suggestions, I've never heard of Lignum Vitae, sounds like something with moss on it! But I want a guitar out of it.........

    The edges wouldn't have to be sharp, if the maker knew what they were doing...Oooh, a guitar out of Lignum Vitae...
    Now that would also double as a truncheon

    I would perceive that it has to do with the age of the wood, the type of wood, where that wood was harvested, the lacquer, the violin design that Stradivarius employed, the specific dimensions of all measurable surfaces=height, width, length...And so on...Then there is that infinite variable called human touch...how the violinist employs the instrument so that it becomes an extension of his/her Soul and Heart.............

    Anyone else care to include other things not mentioned - Yes, I didn't mention the strings because they are changed quite often.............

    Ahhh yes, I forgot about the bridge...what wood it is made of, where that wood came from, its dimensions, what subtle design differentials are used.............

    Bl**dy heck comrade you have covered just about every part of the instrument so you are very near the mark, I asked this question because I read an article that gave another thing recently discovered so I will delay the answer in the hope that we will get some other (serious) replies.
