You have to have a penchant for hearing large-scale structures unfold over relatively long periods to appreciate classical music, though this can be an acquired skill.
It’s this large-scale quality, the sheer dimension of expression that the master composers strove for, that makes classical music different. But the art form is certainly ambitious and demanding. Even a 20-minute Haydn string quartet requires you to focus in order to grasp the structure, content and character.

Trump, that makes Beethoven’s Seventh, or Messiaen’s ecstatic, 75-minute “Turangalîla-Symphonie” seem so monumental, not any inherent artistic superiority.
