AMNESIA: A MACHINE FOR PIGS
Having a quick scan of the list I think I was also the only female composer in the top 50! Off to bed now to ponder the oddness of life..
I feel passionately that music created for visual media should be able to be considered as classical music. What about Philip Glass's work??
Very sad that the UK official charts have withdrawn my Rapture score from the classical charts- think it would have hit no. 1 this week :(
