Who Needs Classical Music?
Cultural Choice and Musical ValueBook - 2002
Johnson maintains that music is more than just "a matter of taste": while some music provides entertainment, or serves as background noise, other music functions as art. He argues that classical music retains its distinct value in today's society because it works in different ways from most of the other music that surrounds us.
