Fun Facts

I just thought I’d post my first forum thread here and the first thread in this forum.

Did you know that Wagner and Liszt are to blame for our habit to listen to and watch performances of music (and theatre etc.) while being quiet and paying attention? In most other cultures (including ours before they came in) people usually listen to music while dancing, chatting and socialising, eating or continuing other usual activities.

Anyone have more interesting facts about music history to share?
