Kudos to columnist Michael Dobie for highlighting the indispensable impact of music on our culture and the loss of several pop music icons in 2016 [“Three maestros of music spoke to my soul,” Opinion, Dec. 26.]

Terms such as maestro and virtuoso, however, should be reserved for the likes of Arturo Toscanini, Jascha Heifitz, Vladimir Horowitz and other immortals of classical music.
