^That's what 'they' want, isn't it^ ?
Oh let’s have a bunfight about the choice of music at the Proms now shall we?
(Rammy in an empty room springs to mind?)
PS I was blown away by the Berlioz Les Troyens - at 5 1/2 hours it was fantastic value for money too)
The reference was meant to be to parochialism.
I trust that no-one would ever seriously suggest that the music played at the Proms should be by British composers only.
(I actually find the Rule Britannia bit a trifle nauseating in view of the idiocy into which Britannia has lapsed in the past 7 years.)
