Oh dear, how distressing having to listen to those time-honoured composers like Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler. I know that Xenakis and Ligeti would fill the hall to over-flowing (not) but you've obviously lost sight of the fact that The Proms are popularity programs for the masses.
The BBC and it's snobbishness. I'd just say, "old hat", that's all.
