Two questions are answered today, and this time by the composers who have shared their insights on Composer on Fire episodes before. The questions:
- What do I do if the people who commissioned the music don’t like it?
- I haven’t commissioned commissioned anything because it will cost a lot of money and I’m not sure I’m going to like it. It’s easier to buy/perform something that’s already proven itself. Why should I commission a new piece?
