Brian Wilshere in Tribe Magazine
“I don’t think that atonality is particularly modern any more. When I was coming up, the feeling was that you had to be atonal in order to be modern, and some people still believe that. I don’t think I ever believed that. I suppose that really what I do is to posit a future for concert music in which the creative model returns to the kind of aesthetic that powered folks like Dvořák or Gershwin. In other words, live in the age you’re in, be open to and draw from the music that’s around you.”
