GUEST,Baroness Thatcher Complex arrangments of traditional music (49) RE: Complex arrangments of traditional music 10 Mar 08

Beethoven's 6th was a complex arrangement of traditional music, as was Tchaikovsky's 1812. Those arrangements have ensured that the melodies used will never be forgotten. There are many other examples of this. Vaughan-Williams was trying to preserve music which he loved and considered too precious to be lost. Whether one prefers complex or simple arrangements is an entirely subjective matter, but both are equally valuable.
