Rein it in there, SPARKY.

Found this little article on the Gaurdian News website: What football can teach Classical Musicians.

This article – though has its points – sort of irritated me. What does it matter that your orchestra is made up of a variety of musicians from different regions of the world?
Yes, I understand the nationalist argument here, but this isn’t sports – you don’t have orchestras lining up to compete with each other.
So, doesn’t that nationalist ideal sort of become null and void here?
