To be more serious, I think liking classical music merely requires training, and it adresses maybe less emotional, more intellectual functions of the brain.
<< I knew one might say that !!
In the context of the article leading to this thread, no harm done whatsoever.
But, in any other case, where the power of the brain is involved, in the sense
you mentioned " more intellectual ", a point of view like yours is influenced
by a cultural/ social/ bourgeois prejudice.
Not that this was your intention, I presume, but it seems odd to me that
most of the time classical music is associated with a more " elitair " life,
something more for the upper classes.
And like Philip Jonkers mentioned rightly, Persaud talked about people
suffering from dementia, bourgeois or upperclass is of no meaning here.
If you are willing to recognize what the consequences are of dementia,
I wonder if we ever can talk of upperclass, intellectual abilities again.
