"The coming mania for inclusion will erode standards of merit and
excellence"

[....]

"Music critic Alex Ross triggered outrage against the Chicago Symphony
Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra last week when he tweeted that
they had programmed no female composers in their 2018-2019 seasons. Never
mind that over most of music history, the greatest composers have been
male. At a time of diminishing classical music audiences, it is reckless to
wield identity politics against our most important and precious musical
institutions"
