    On account of excellent musical education from formative years, the U.K was a world leader in Classical Music at this point in time.

    • That was the era in which London orchestras earned large amounts of money from recordings, which meant they needed very little funding from either donations from the rich or public subsidy to be “world class”. Weren’t we lucky.
