Didn’t know Dylan’s music? wtf

June 18, 2012

Not to make any comment about John Corigliano‘s “Mr Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Bob Dylan” but I read a comment by John somewhere and he confessed he didn’t know the Dylan originals. That’s when I realized that I come from a very different world than John. I am from a generation of classical composers who are proud of their pop music heritage and although I don’t make any conscious effort to incorporate it in my music, it’s always there for those who have ears.
