12-page Interview

Charles Roland Berry says exactly what he thinks about 21st Century classical music, and the music

business.  We read details about his study with

Paul Creston and Peter Racine Fricker.  And, Mr. Berry

holds nothing back in his criticism of the narrow

aesthetic views of 20th Century composers and

music critics.  Frankly, my dear, young audiences

in the 21st Century have no interest in the incoherent

squabbling of 20th Century egos.
