Inherent beauty

Excellent opening to a blog-post by the Director of the BBC Proms, David Pickard.

"Alan Davey wrote recently of his optimism that ‘the inherent beauty, complexity and mystery of classical music will see it endure and continue to fascinate and delight audiences and artists alike’. It’s a beautifully phrased statement that refutes the warning we so often hear that classical music is on the wane."

Yes, Alan Davey, Contoller of Radio 3 and guitarist, is also David's boss.

David wants to share the fact that 120,000 tickets to the Proms have been sold in the 24 hours since they first went on offer. Last year, it was 118,000.
