Sue misses my point re Proms conservative programming. I have nothing against mainstream composers, especially Bruckner and Mahler, if they are well performed. I was responding more to the over-hyping by BBC presenters, specifically when they were extolling the 'sheer' diversity of Proms composers etc. BBC snobbishness may be 'old hat' but it still needs to be pointed out in the context of an increasingly multi-cultural social reality.
