Newtonian Physics = Classical Music?

Well-thought out commentary by John Steinmetz published on Greg Sandow's ArtsJournal blog.

In a culture of multiple streams, no kind of music can tell the whole story, so classical music will not be replaced at the center of culture by some other kind of music. Instead, our culture will foster many kinds of musical expression, including some new ones uniquely suited to current values, passions, and concerns.
I like the concept of multiple streams. Doesn't just apply to music, either.
