Why do we hate contemporary classical music?

The linked article by Alex Ross in the Guardian of November last year is a good introduction on this subject, which draws more heated discussion between classical music lovers than any other. This is witnessed once more in the widely varying comments this article received. Personally I prefer to explore this subset of classical music as I do all others: with interest and an open mind, saving the gems and discarding the parts I do not like. Well worth reading.
