What Exactly Is A Symphony?
Tom Service: "A symphony isn't just a structure, a musical formula, or a set of containers - three or four movements of contrasting speeds and characters - that composers merely had to fill in to qualify as 'symphonic' writers. The symphony is really a way of thinking about what music actually is, what it's really for." The Guardian (UK) 09/10/13
