And Promenade!

Just watched Eric Whitacre conduct his composition,"Deep Field," at this year's Proms (on catch-up). Wow! It certainly does exactly what it says on the tin, as we say round these parts. Okay, Whitacre is not the most original composer in the world ever, but who gives a flying one about that? I mean where has originality taken classical music in the last century? Up its own arse, that's where. I'll take super-massive orchestras and mega-choirs clashing Holst with Pärt and blowing my mind in the process any day of the week, thank you very much.
