Latest composer anniversary briefing
Some illustrious names are joining On An Overgrown Path in questioning what do composer anniversaries achieve? The latest is Nike Wagner who, speaking in Berlin, has criticised “blatant Wagner marketing”. Talking of which, that accompanying visual is not a spoof; you can buy a Wagner thong from cafepress.com.
