No One Expects the 12-Tone Inquisition (Bill Eddins, blog link)

“Of course, no one can blame Shoenberg for the current crisis in classical music, anymore than one can blame Queen Elizabeth II for the fact that no British born man has won Wimbledon since 1936.”–Bill Eddins

A timely, thought provoking article that is as much about classical music as it is a commentary of political and social conditions. Sure to raise the hackles on the Orthodoxy of Classical Music.  Written by Bill Eddins, Music Director of the Edmonton, Symphony in Canada on his blog, Sticks and Drones.
