Sample text

92]. Since kitsch in this sense is about expression, it is a psychological category. But an artist will only not mean an expressive gesture, if he does not believe in the possibility of authentic expression, or if he is—due to a lack of talent—not capable of such a thing. But if—in terms of talent—an artist is capable of authentic expression which he could mean, in which he could believe, but rationally, because of his upbringing and education, he believes he is locked up in the narrow present moment on the line of historical narrative, he cannot allow himself to mean an expressive gesture.

Kitsch is the imitation of an expressive gesture, a cheap imitation that remains on the surface. It is not meant, as authentic art is meant, it is false and for that reason it creates the unpleasant “yuck” sensation in people whose sensibilities are trained in the experiences of high art. As Roger Scruton says in his Modern Culture, from the modernist point of view, . . you can turn back to figurative painting, to tonality, to classicism— but you will only be imitating these things, never actually doing them.

And it is in their interest that audiences can experience this new development, because new classical works are a rejuvenating injection into the existing repertoire, underlining this repertoire’s living presence not only as works from the past but also in its progeny in the present, thus establishing a direct link with the living and inviting commitment and discussion. It is the strongest possible justification for considering classical art music in general as a culture which is fundamentally relevant to the Western world.
