He famously once walked out on a concert after being told that he couldn't smoke a cigarette beforehand, as was his standard practice.

Starker was famously fond of Scotch, as well.


I like him already.

RIP Nazi-war-camp-surviving, scotch-drinking, smoking, master musician guy.

C'mon- classical has been dead since the beginning of last century. These guys are just keeping it on life support by churning out symphonic versions of video game sound tracks and covers of Metallica albums when they aren't playing the same classical pieces by the same three composers over and over again.

Not trying to come off as reactionary here, but if you see a child carrying anything other than a guitar case you should probably run it down with your car. You're doing classical music and the child a huge favor.

Wha? Why is there a Cosby reference in the headline? Is it because "cello" is close to "Jell-O"? Wow, that is LAME.

Classical music is not a synonym for orchestral music.

Is this where I say stop not liking what I like? Or something like that.

Many rock musicians were trained in classical music (Rick Wakeman, Richard Wright) to name a few. Classical built the prog rock sound.

So yeah. Classical is alive in rock as much as jazz and blues.

You don't have the proper perspective...  If you take all the "reasonable" classical music, you'll find that there are truly memorable pieces which were written every few years.  That is, years would go by with no noteworthy music...  like Lalapalooza.  Strangely enough, that is still holding up.  Every few years, a decent piece of classical music is generated.  Musical development is much harder than strumming three different chords, and wailing about your pickup truck.  As an example of relatively recent classical music, see "Concerto for Group and Orchestra" written by Jon Lord of Deep Purple.  It is a natural, modern extension of the concerto, and done rather well.
