Worth a read. Whilst I see Sandow's point, that calling this stuff 'contemporary' is misplaced, and damaging, I agree with his correspondent more - I've been to plenty of concerts of Stockhausen, Boulez, Ligeti, etc. etc. that were absolutely packed. And the observation that their audiences are yonger, more enthusiastic, and basically enjoy the music much more than the stuffed shirts do is absolutely spot on.
