Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Plays The Music Of Meatloaf
It's not the performances that are in question; come on....this is the Royal Philharmonic ! This orchestra is comprised of musicians that have the chops to play the most advanced, intricate, and difficult compositions on the planet. They have eyes that can read a speck of fly poop on a manuscript from a mile away. And that's exactly the point. Do we really need the R.P.O. to orchestrate a power chord, especially when there are serious modern classical composers out there today writing super heavy music, that would give their left you-know-what to have the R.P.O., or any other orchestra perform their works? This is not a stab at Meatloaf. The viability of what he does is not in question; his contributions to pop culture have been duly noted. And I feel that the addage "if it aint broke, don't fix it" especially rings true in this case. So it becomes a question of whether this music is essential, or even necessary. In life, and in music, some things are better left unsaid.
