Is the age of classical music geniuses over with invention of such pieces of software like Sibelius and MuseScore?
Is it like with the invention of such pieces of software like Sibelius and MuseScore the whole idea of composing, especially the classical pieces, has been greatly hollowed out? I've just watched this short video on YouTube:
and was, in fact, quite disappointed by it because being a classical-music amateur and a dilettante, well, in fact, just a person who likes listening to classical music from time to time, I think I would have considered this piece to be quite a good and qualitative piece of classical music - that is, if I didn't see the score. But having seen the score, I realize now that it was just done for fun - that is, for the fun of drawing a cat using musical notes on the score - and yet it sounded, at least to my ear, as a good piece of classical music.
Besides, we can see how many Sb and MS users are now writing their music easily (using those pieces of software that helps them hear right away what they write) and uploading their creation on YouTube. And those pieces are not bad at all! In fact, I think they are on par with the classical scores written by famous composers of 18th century. But the huge and growing number of such videos on YouTube is just staggering.
So , does that all mean that the age of classical music geniuses is over with the invention of the pieces of software that kind of "exposed" the workings of the process of composing music?
