Probably one of those new fangled minimalist chappies. I gather the plot is of the kitchen sink drama variety ...

Is this a case of the shibboleth and baggage of the term making the ambition seem overblown? I thought PMD handled this by a deft bit of dramaturgy. Nyman might be thinking compact one-movement things perhaps?
It’s a tough one, Jim. While I expect most of us here would agree that this sad news is hardly of major significance – and some of us might even think her family should be left to deal with the grief without having to share it with half the world – the fact is that we live in a society where this kind of news is regarded as being important. I wouldn’t mind betting that if the BBC & others had relegated the news to a minor story more people would have asked why it wasn’t given greater prominence than are now wondering why it was made headline news. Personally I found myself rather saddened by the news but couldn’t bring myself to start an RIP thread here because I actually don’t know much about the individual beyond the fact that she comes from a family that has had more than its share of tragedy. The news is probably quite important for the light it shines on our values as a society and, while I agree that ‘first item on The World Tonight’ is probably too much , it’s probably more valid than, say, the prurient reporting of the Pistorius trial.

Someone told me that an official recording (Hyperion) is happening today.
