Not to mention the timeless classic...



There are many, many, many more from whence these came. Many more.

My answer: virtually none, and that is no comment on the enjoyability of much of our era. But that isn't how posterity works.

Or to come at it another way, which musicians from 500 years ago are remembered today?

Not really something you want to ponder too hard. Most art lives or dies first in its own time. Posterity is a freebie, but not worth shooting for, cause you'll never get there deliberately.

IF there'll be any musicians remembered, I'd say it would be the Beatles. There's hardly a soul that has never heard of even their name, let alone at least one of their songs.


Though, 500 years is quite quite far away.

The thing is though, there was no recorded music to live on, for future generations. According to wikipedia:

Quote:
The earliest existence of printed music dates from about 1465, and then only liturgical chants were printed.
Far be it from me to minimize the appeal of liturgical chants, but it's sort of understandable that we have little access to music from 500 years ago.

Anyway, there's a far greater chance that music from our current era will live on in the future than there was for 15th century music to be available to us now.

Ha, I know the feeling. Imagine the chagrin caused by my earnest reply earlier in the thread, before I realized this was a joke thread. :ashamed:

Isn't it less likely for classical composers like Mozart or Beethoven to outlast our current favorites, simply because we have no photographs, no video, no recordings of them actually PLAYING anything? I think the 20th century stuff actually has a better chance because we can preserve them completely.
