A problem with New Classical Music

Ok, I occasionally rant about the direction of classical music... but I'm not alone.

Joe Queenan of the Guardian feels much the same.

And yet... Tom Service presents a compelling reason as to why Joe is wrong.

Lesley Aeschliman writes about why Classical music isn't dead (and may never be) - with far more voters voting no, than yes. Although, Amber Jansky (a yes voter) speaks about just the sort of issue I am concerned with - the future of Classical music in terms of market share and what is it that people are really listening to.
