As a piano nerd, allow me to reassure you that the reason that many Classical keyboard compositions sound terrible to you isn’t because you lack the background to properly appreciate them. I mean, you do lack the background to properly appreciate them, but they’re also objectively terrible, and the fact that you need the proper background to understand them is big part of why they’re terrible. They’re so preoccupied with demonstrating the technical skill of the performer that they totally forgot about actually sounding good, producing pieces that are comprehensible only to other keyboardists. And even we don’t really enjoy them – we just play them to torture ourselves, because all serious keyboardists are also masochists.

all I’m hearing is that rolling dexterity for perform (piano) checks is valid.

Associated ability scores for Perform (piano) checks by era:

  • Baroque: Dexterity
  • Classical: Intelligence
  • Romantic: Constitution

#performing modernist music isn’t an ability check at all#you just start making death saving throws#if you don’t get three successes before three failures the ghost of sergei rachmaninov annihilates you with his big meaty claws
