Classical Music is nothing but covers.

@craigmaloney Truer than it even first appears when you consider the changes in instrument construction since then. Woodwinds especially sound quite different from those the music was originally composed for and there have been many gauntlets thrown on whether the "better" modern ones are the way it "should" be played, with purists stating it's not how the compositions were meant to be heard, while others argue the improvements should be appreciated. Then the Ouija boards come out

Unless "Classical Music" is a cover band, you're wrong 😉
