As Guardian readers will already be aware, there’s a debate raging within the publication’s pages – both in print and online: a debate inspired by Joe Queenan’s article on the ‘tortuous’ nature of new classical music, and to which ENO’s Artistic Director John Berry has responded.  Given the contraversial nature of Queenan’s argument that new classical music leaves something to be desired, it’s not suprising that a whole host of responses have appeared online, making for some fascinating reading!
