I don't want to be a perpetual grumbler, but can't we have genuine forums here - discussions? What is there to talk about here? - three perfectly ordinary competent composers have received 3 more expected's hardly even news......

David, why don't you instead give us your opinions (you are entitled to have opinions - and as moderator, have exercised your duty to act on some of them) on some of the important issues that have come up on other forums?

It is strange but I agree 100 per cent with Misuc
I do hope this is important , two complete different person, agree that there are far more important clues
on which to argue so .
Please keep this forum to a high profile and stop sponsoring Ades and his work he is not appreciated
anywhere outside his own noble self sponsored dominion and his fame does only harm to the good and
positive composer I know here in UK
that suffer from the fact that he has so much power and is not wunderkid at all
