Have you ever heard a piece of classical music and thought, "I don't get it"? Graeme Steele Johnson believes that everyone has the capacity to decode the language of expectation, irony and drama in classical music if we only adjust the way we listen, because great music rewards great listening. In his talk, "Music About Nothing: Seinfeld and the Classical Style", Johnson traces the structural similarities between Mozart and that '90s sitcom to explain how to hear narrative and dramatic elements in music without a plot.
