    Predictably André Rieu winning the FM Classic award for best album has sparked a lot of debate about popular vs classical music (again). It’s pretty well summed up in this piece by British classical pianist James Rhodes: http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/culture/jamesrhodes/100066768/at-last-the-classic-brit-awards-exposed-as-a-sickening-crime-against-classical-music/

    I can understand their point. Rieu already beats pop music at its own game. Shouldn’t the classical music awards be giving a hand to classical musicians that could do with some support?
