Classical music targets the adult only audience



I have argued before that classical music's new audience is grey haired. So it is good to see Melodiya agreeing and giving their new set of Tikhon Khrennikov's symphonies and concertos a 16+ rating.

Best for 2015.

Speaking of neglected composers, have you heard symphonic works by Heino Heller.

Recommended and how great is this to hear a unique voice.

Best, Antoine

It's wonderful to see and hear Khrennikov's music get a fair outing, despite his checkered reputation. I think a collection so encompassing should have more than afair amount of historical value beyond whatever musical value it offers. Thank you for alerting us to this recording.
