The idea that John Cage can only be enjoyed by a "small circle of cognoscenti" is erroneous. I can remember attending a concert which included 4'33" many years ago, the talk before the concert was one of derision for the piece, although by half time the conversation had changed from this to one of appreciation, I remember my friends father, who described himself as a "crusty traditionalist" loving the piece and everything that he heard during it! It received rapturous applause from the audience. Perhaps therefore the idea is to experience the piece live and with an open mind and not sat there in your living room.
