  • On An Overgrown Path: Never underestimate the public's intelligence
    representative of the classical music market Here are two examples to illustrate my point The first comes from the responses to my LSO Live Nielsen post Tam Pollard who writes one of the most widely read non aligned music blogs Where s Runnicles commented Fascinating post thanks I find myself largely in agreement On a side note Andrew McGregor speaking on BBC Radio 3 CD Review described the Nielsen disc as a well worked Barbican recording which had me more or less spitting out my coffee Now contrast Andrew McGregor s view with the comments from two CD buying readers For my taste the LSO Live series has been one of nearly unrelieved disappointment a fine orchestra for sure but would anyone say any of that series becomes their reference performance of any work Surely not I agree with Nick I have several LSO Live recordings in my collection most were impulse buys and now gather dust on the shelf My second example is topical but not directly related to my concert recording post Last week the Independen t ran a lamentable piece titled Do we really need to sex up opera At the Boulezian another leading non aligned blog Mark Berry took up the challenge and in a post titled Journalism and the contempt with which our newspapers treat music demolished the Independent s article with forensic precision A Boulezian reader summed the situation up very well in a comment Unfortunately compared to what passes for music writing these days the article quoted is Erudition Personified There is no doubt the quality of professional music journalism is now a major concern But of even more concern are the hidden agendas that underpin much of its shabby output Lou Harrison s Gendling Chelsea for gamelan and voices sets aphorisms by Virgil Thomson One of these is remarkably relevant to music journalism today Never underestimate the public s intelligence baby and never overestimate its information More on Lou Harrison here My header image is another product of Wordle this time using the New Music reBlog feed Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Also on Facebook and Twitter Posted by Pliable at Monday January 31 2011 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels BBC Radio 3 classical music classical music journalism Joe Koczera lso live Mark Berry Tam Pollard virgil thomson No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23
