And there is a vast field where composers are working in various kinds of multimeida events, writing pieces which mix lots of influences from all over the world.

Like that.

I think we must start re-interpreting what classical music is (or is supposed to be) - although some of this is indeed going on now

And here's an interview with Ben from that same website:

From the article linked -
"The eighteenth century might indulge in idolatry . . . but it was the distinction of the nineteenth century to develop the cult of musical necrolatry"

Thanks, Andrew, "necrolatry" may be my new favorite word!  Good!
