Classical Music Victimized by Wrong-Headed Misrepresentation (again)
I am in total agreement with Ivan Hewett's latest article for the London Telegraph, in which he launches a no-prisoners assault on a new recording entitled Now That’s What I Call Relaxing Classical. Indeed, I am so sympathetic that I cannot resist throwing some fat into his fire. It concerns an allegedly "classical" radio station (whose call letters I have forgotten, probably for the benefit of all involved) that used to describe itself as providing "music that gives your mind a rest!"
