I'm afraid your hopes have been dashed. My sincere apologies for my
amazing lack of education. Would you like to continue to insult me
further? Please, really, I like being belittled.

Unfortunately, my professor made it clear during my 1750-present class
that several composers would be rather glanced over, as he felt 3 hours a
week was hardly enough time to cover everything he would have liked to.
We did however, spend two classes on Wagner alone, and two classes on
Brahms alone. Perhaps he felt that the musical developments that Dvorak
made were better presented in Brahms and Wagner. But what do I know,
