Mixed Up Class Playlist, 10/9/95

There didn't seem to be any global unifying theme for today's program. However, in the closing hour, there was a fair amount of poking fun at the Last Night of the BBC Promenade Concerts:

The Last Night is the most overrated event of the musical calendar. It's awful (although this year there's a new work which should confuse the partygoers) with people waving Union flags and letting off klaxons. It's one of those institutions which cannot be changed under pain of something-really-nasty as one conductor found a few years ago when he tried to drop "Land of Hope and Glory" and "Rule, Britannia" from the programme. It's much better to go to the real concerts.

The abovementioned "Jerusalem" is a setting of a poem by the unconventional poet/artist William Blake. More musical settings of Blake's poetry will be featured in future editions of Mixed Up Class.
