Well Beethoven string quartets have been largely overlooked by Sidmouth but I'm not complaining. The Proms are what they are and, to give the organisers in recent years some credit, they have been allowed to evolve. Ms Carthy's piece was unnecessarily patronising in that final paragraph and it reeked not a little of ignorance of what the Proms have evolved from and into.

And folk music--Albert Hall--hmm!
