Classical music has a new fashion
Demonstrating solidarity with the proletariat by gently nibbling the hand that feeds you is the new fashion among classical music's demimonde. Which means that in the New Statesman BBC Radio 3 website contributor Andrew Mellor rails against the advertisements for private schools in the BBC Proms programmes that help pay the spectacular salaries of BBC Radio 3 contributors. Others prefer to get high on the music. Today's audio contribution to our colour of music thread comes from reader Jihong Park, and in it his teacher Judith Burganger plays Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto conducted by Dean Dixon. More on this path in another reader led post - 'Dean Dixon - I owe him a huge debt'.
