Classical composers are a mild and bookish lot on the whole. They like to wrap up warm, are into organic food, and rarely break into a run. Their music reflects the fact that they live in their heads, rather than their bodies.

I’m not sure I’ve ever noticed this … the organic food, the wrapping up warm …? Hmmm. But according to this I guess I’m just out of touch. (The article is actually about Tansy Davies, a composer who doesn’t fit the “norm” … if the above is truly the norm for classical composers.)
