Interesting article about Joshua Bell busking in the DC metro as an experiment.

Is there such thing as objectively good music? Or is putting Joshua Bell playing Bach in plainclothes and being aghast that people don't recognize his genius akin to, say, being upset that an American hearing declamation of Chinese poetry doesn't feel moved? Is it just that the vocabulary and syntax of popular music has changed, not completely discontinuously, but significantly over the last few hundred years?
