Tangentially, on the theme of the concert hall conveying any kind of legitimacy:  I find John Williams’s music for the screen superior to any of the “concert music” he has written.  My personal working hypothesis there is, that in the case of his movie soundtracks, he had others to whom his work needed to answer.

Without making any comparison in terms of quality, I think the case of Wagner may also be instructive in that his "absolute music" is, almost exclusively, lackluster compared to the dramatic projects that inspired him.
"l do not consider my music as atonal, but rather as non-tonal. I feel the unity of all keys. Atonal music by modern composers admits of no key at all, no feeling of any definite center." - Arnold Schoenberg

Aye, that thought crossed my mind, I do admit.

I have not had much in the way of musical ideas lately, since the big one last year it's been a bit of a drought, on top of that I just haven't had much time or energy to devote to it. This is the first thing I've been able to complete since, not counting some extremely simple soundtrack work.
