The Malice of Musicians | Standpoint

The Malice of Musicians | Standpoint. This is a very disheartening inside view of how classical musicians treat each other. The money quote:

Teachers are musicians who couldn’t make it on stage. Orchestras are populated with failed soloists. The music industry is peopled with former music students who exploit their artists’ feelings of inadequacy to hide their own incompetence. Music is a merry-go-round of dashed ambitions, a vicious cycle of lost worth.

An even creepy problem. Many musicians have a repetitive strain injury that they must, at all costs, keep from everyone else.
