Anniversary composers are normally the obvious ones, there is the occasional 'lip-service' piece to the less obvious ones or they snubbed altogether. Scadinavian music is normally almost exclusively confined to the 'big three' with the occasional more recent work, the same is true of Russian music post 1920, and American music is of the same period is kept to popular classics a bit of avant-garde or a favoured composer (normally John Adams). The continual virtual ignoral of a group of 20th century composers like Hindemith, Martinu, Honegger, Milhaud, Roussel for example.
The proms should be an opportunity to experiment with a whole range of composers contrasting well known works and composers of all periods with the lesser known ones.
We also said that there would be absolutely no reduction in quality if the Proms did not expand each year, and that a cut in the number of events would be perfectly allowable in hard times. (The submissions will be up on the Trust's website soon, but haven't yet appeared)
Well, I'm happy!
