A wonderful piece of article found on NPR.org, titled “The Lesson of Britten’s ‘War Requiem’: Don’t Underestimate Younger Audiences”. Worth reading.
Maybe we are the one who is not capable enough to capture and digest some of ‘complicated’ music.

Don’t give up on younger audiences, and all of us know that the future of our music depends on them.
