A writer named Mark Vanhoenacker wrote some really stupid things in Slate. What's so dumb? Well, asserting that classical music is dead, relying on selective quotations, failing to do his own research (or thinking), and an overreliance on unsupported assertions from Greg Sandow.
Andy Doe had a few things to say to him in response (boy, howdy!). So does Adam Sliwinski, percussionist of the not-dead-any-time-soon So Percussion. Read and enjoy!
