This cracks me up:
Lutyens recounts visiting old friends at a local communist office in Newcastle, who expressed interest in her mining-disaster dramatic scene The Pit (Op. 14, 1947), and suggested they play it at local pit welfare halls. When Lutyens warned they might not appreciate the ‘modern music’, an ex-miner present asked: ‘don’t you think that after two hundred years of capitalist ownership we could stand twenty minutes ‘modern music’?’
That's from this blog. Also, apparently, neither Lutyens nor any other woman, was allowed to teach composition at the Royal Academy of Music. Because. You know. Reasons.
Humble Bumble is cool. And so is Subnautica: Below Zero.
