If you program a new work on a symphony concert, it’s probably best to notify the audience sooner than right before the concert. I’d love to hear from some orchestra members … was the work really that awful?

I’ve certainly played some works that I wish had never been composed, but I think it’s best to go through with it. Let the audience and reviewers tell the tale.

Or, to be honest, let time tell the tale. If it’s a hit 100 years from now, well, there you go! 🙂
