Dissenter sought

I don't want to alarm classical music fans who like things the way they are, but the job spec for the next Director of the Proms is out, and this is the first "personal attribute" the panel will be looking for (my italics).

  • Credibility in the music world with a passion for classical music and the ability to articulate a strategic vision for the development of the BBC Proms. Ability to challenge traditional assumptions about the BBC Proms.
Oh dear. More Paloma Faith, Pet Shop Boys-style malarkey to come...
