Can't remember if I asked this question before.
I'm wondering how you all feel about repeats. I'll probably get flogged for saying this, but I don't like them. I like playing through a section and continuing on to the next. Repeating an entire section I think is well...repetitive
and I wonder why composers put them in all the time. It gets boring to hear a whole two or three pages all over again before you get to go on. Was it too just take up more time? Did they think the listener may not have heard it correctly the first time? Do professionals always take the repeats or is it ever okay not to?
