The only possible way to tire of listening to a piece of music is by hearing it only on recording.   The variables involved in live performance reflect variables composed  into the music and must always be there, otherwise it is not music.
Once that is accepted as the only plausible definition of music there will always be something new to hear, to remark upon.
It's odd, reading reviews in the daily paper, that so little attention is paid to the quality of listening inspired by the performance.  Perhaps it is a tacit admission that listening is more complex, demands time and reflection, just as does any other worthwhile activity.
