Title: "Enduring Music"
This essay responds to a question posed by Tim Moore in the EUNOMIOS Forum that inquired about determinative principles for music that endures. The author of "Enduring Music" discusses three principles of musical creativity that have and will continue to determine enduring aural art. Sobaskie summarizes these principles as positive directives: "pursue conscientious communication," "cultivate artistic community," and "foster youthful creativity." He concludes by urging the championing of originality and innovation in composition, which characterize "great" and "historically significant" works that last, through the application of these three principles.
