A classic example that the arts, in this case classical music, are just as political and insider oriented (perhaps more so) as any big corporation or government agency. Simply because Paul Creston didn’t attend or teach at Curtis or Juilliard you practically never get to hear his music. The 2nd Violin Concerto is equally as beautiful, and just as (maybe more) challenging as the Barber. Moreover, this is just one of countless examples of this crap. Why does everything have to be this way? I’m sick of it.
