Highs and lows
Reading through any of the quality music magazines today exposes one's
mind to an experience likened to dizziness. In recent years music has opened
out like a tropical plant with brilliant foliage and a sensuous aroma. Brilliant
musicians, whether performers, composers or conductors, are providing the
world with challenging music and performances. The capacity of young professionals
is enormous, some with the subtleties linked with memorable music-making.
There are the usual run of disappointments common with any human endeavour,
but one can ignore what eventually fails if meretricious.
Every country with a reasonable commitment to education and additional
responsibilities for the arts usually provides assistance for training,
so a slow transformation becomes apparent. There's no denying a snail's
pace in some areas, and the burden of bureaucracy endured in others, which
likewise drags enterprise into the clerical equivalent of deep mud.
As we now have readers from most countries, it would be of value if they
wrote to us when there is news of positive assistance somewhere for Music,
and Performers. There is so much that can be achieved through the focal
point of a daily magazine, which can instantly bring news (not just good
but also provocative news) to readers around the globe. Messages
cost just a phone call and a few minutes of your time. Please therefore
make use of the internet to aid us in helping others -- and you.
