All is not lost, but where is it?


Beethoven, Stockhausen, Beecham, Copland, Fauré, Dukas, Messiaen, Hovhaness, Orff, Handel, Marvin Gaye and Bob Marley are quoted in the artwork for fluid world music collective Suns of Arqa's album Shabda. Another of their albums featuring classically-trained Australian flautist Raja Ram (aka Ronald Rothfield) is seen above and provides my headline. Its title All Is Not Lost, But Where Is It? is a good summary of the state of classical music today.
