Does a Civ's music stop playing when they're elminated?

    ... are you some sort of elitist? Not to mention some Civ 6 music do borrow elements from "classical" music.
    And yes I can and WILL say some civ 6 music can be just as good as these music.

    Hahaha, no, I rarely even listen to classical music, I'm mostly a metalhead. :rockon:
    But I do think these little bits are a nice introduction to classical music, from around the world. They even inspired me to use Eine Kleine Nacht Music as my ringtone. (darn thing got stuck in my head)
    Sure, they could and maybe should have been of higer quality, but they only last a few seconds. I donno, maybe it was a copyright thing?

    I like civ 6 music since they are based on traditional melodies from all across the world and are nice introduction to musical culture of all around the world.
    (as can be seen from this thread I created so many weeks ago. https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/original-version-of-all-civ-6-music.669947/ )

    As you say, they're only a few seconds long so they shouldn't trigger YouTube's or Twitch's copyright detection (which was the reason Civ6 moved away from licensed music) so licensing a few clips should have been okay; using their own recordings would definitely have been okay. I'd imagine the choice to use synthetic orchestras was an economic one, but even so I have no idea why they ended up with such low-quality MIDIs. Granted, I'm an audiophile and always prefer a real orchestra--there is no substitute for the real thing--but MIDIs can still be higher quality than what FXS used in Civ6. It's rather strange.

    Scythia is a case of a theme that was composed by Knorr, actually :p

    I actually like all the music but there are a one or two that I am not as huge a fan of. Overall, the music quality is superb and a huge step up from past iterations.

    The Zulu music is my absolute favourite. I am always delighted when they show up in my games. Hopefully at a distance. Lol.
