How one feels about any piece of music is very subjective, and not very objective. Rating composers and their works is a lot like judging a baking contest. There are certain points one awards based on objective criteria, but the final ranking is pretty much based on the tastes of the judges. On a blah day, when life is dull, listening to most of John Williams work will arouse positive feelings of "truth, justice, and the American way" in me. When I am down in the dumps, I prefer the second movement of Beethoven's Tenth aka Brahms First. When seeking spiritual uplift, Mozart, Laudate Domine. But I can be transported to lovelier, more congenial locales by the work of MacDowell, Rachmaninov, Bartok, Pachelbel (heard his Canon in D done by the Berlin Philharmonic, in Philharmonie Halle, conducted by Karajan, lovely), Danzi, Schumman, Schubert, Mendelsohn, Janacek, Copland, Elgar, Ludwig himself, Huemperdinck, Tchaikovski, Haendel, Verdi, Bach, and too many more to think of at the moment. Some times I think there is too much out there to take time to develop an appreciation for something that not only did not excite, but did annoy. I was just recently listening to a cd of Mendelsohn's Midsummer Nights Dream and admiring the Tuba. Then, again, a couple of them singer-storytellers frum Texas sound good, too.<P>All of that to say: Like what you will. Listen and enjoy. If I tune out, just means that selection did not touch me enough to hold my attention. But you go on and enjoy it.
