We went to a concert tonight and they announced that they had a specially commissioned new work to play.
I'm in favor of new work but for some reason I never seem to like the new works they play at most concerts. So imagine my shock and relief when I liked the new piece, American Rhapsody, by Peter Boyer.
The secret, as it turns out, is that Boyer is a professional film and TV composer. So he's willing to write in what lots of critics take to be an old-fashioned idiom.
I like the old stuff, but, you see
the current idiom's Greek to me.
