Tom Service says that Joe Queenan’s rant against new music conveniently ignores what’s actually being written now in favor of tired attacks on compositional ideas that have long since gone out of fashion.Furthermore, “there is another story in all this, one that Queenan doesn’t even mention. The music of the 20th century now dominates most orchestral concerts you will ever hear.”
