"Classical" music is what we consider "older" music. But in reality, music does not age. Composers grow old and die, but their music never dies. People still listen to music that was created hundreds and even thousands of years ago.
"La música expresa aquello que no puede ser dicho y sobre los cuales es imposible guardar silencio"-Victor Hugo "Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent"-Victor Hugo
