All The More Reason


One of the nicer things about France

The site altamusica.com asked the same three questions to the main presidential candidates in France in regards to their opinions on classical music.

1. Is music an entertaining art or a component of the general culture?

2. Is classical music elitist?

3. Should a musical career continue to be managed essentially by the state? (The translation for this question might not be exactly accurate.)

In general, their answers aren’t too shabby.

I couldn’t imagine a similar interview occuring much elsewhere in the Western world before an election of this magnitude.
