Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
My first leak of the morning gives a rundown on the ACE’s five biggest clients.
It will be the smaller, more diverse groups and those outside London which will face obvlivion.
Of course these big, grand institutions need subsidy – they are expemsive to run, especially opera but it is also these organizations that will attract private and corporate sponsors.
The budget really was a re-distribution of wealth across the board where the most vulnerable and needy (including those in the arts) have their life line cut off.
We shouldn’t blame the ACE and those in receipt of grants should not crow and think about their fellow colleagues who will now sink. Blame the government.
