尽管音乐对每个人来说，都再熟悉不过了，但是几乎每个人对 这门艺术都有自己的观点看法。什么音乐算是好的音乐，这是见仁 见智的。各个音乐风格都有自己的经典音乐作品流行的并不完全等 于经典的。一个好的音乐作品，是创作者(creator)和演奏者(performer) 双方共同努力的结果，二者相辅相成，缺一不可。
While music is familiar to virtually everyone it is an art, about which everyone has an opinion. What defines “great” music is, very much, a personal issue. There is “great” music in every style but what is popular does not always define the quality. Music is a joint effort between the creator and the performer and one cannot exist without the other.
