I like to bemoan the lack of feeling in contemporary culture.  It is only fair to point out exceptions:  The living composers with whom I have contact do care, and care a lot, about my having pursued the work of one of their own who lived centuries ago.  
It must have to do with the way the musician's mind works: including factors of the changing world we share along with connection to remembered music, and to the music we learned as children.
Of one thing I am constantly aware: what a difference it makes to have grown up in a musical household, which I did not.  Those who do mature more confidently into a sense of mutual trust, of meaning.
