I didn't like the Grauniad piece because it only really seeks to paint a picture of contemporary classical as a sort of hip sidecar adjunct to pop; it's full of "b-b-but the ideas of composer X can be heard radiating through to the work of Guardian-reader-friendly-rock act Y"-type getout clauses.

yeah, that aspect of it reads like marketing rather than criticism.

I think Service's piece is great and only briefly does it touch upon pop culture
