LETTER: Time to let classical music die?

editorial image

So the BBC is starting a campaign to get children interested in classical music.

Wouldn’t they get interested in it by themselves if it was any good?

Just like opera, which is always crying out for funding, it’s a niche interest that is only “enjoyed” by people who like to think they’re better than everyone else.

If there isn’t a big enough audience to support these “arts”, just let them die.
