A - Loving the supposedly bold estimate of the cost of the thing. Way to go yet.Just think what our financially challenged performing ensembles could do with the millions that Universal Music flushed down the toilet at Sinfini - the English National Opera chorus immediately springs to mind. The tragedy of all this is that very little of the wasted money reached the musicians at the bottom of the food chain, but instead went to consultants and other middle feeders. Sinfini's stated aim was to help its audience "discover the very best of classical music", which is precisely what ENO and the many other fine but struggling ensembles are doing, and will continue to do long after this sorry saga is conveniently forgotten. Now I wonder when the 'inside track' journalists who wrote for Sinfini are going to run this story?
B - Indeed. It burnt through that before it had even been launched.
