He's a talented musician but how can you possibly think this is interesting programming? Any commissions? Any real risks?

I can think what I like, Mark, and I know where you're coming from (or I can guess): no, no major commissions (though Colin Matthews's Faure arrangements are new; big deal, I can hear you saying. And there's an Adams UK premiere elsewhere in the SCO season). No, I'm interested in how the programmes are put together, and for me that's unusual: it shows the way RT wants to go.
