I was wondering if anybody could give me a little advice I was reading a Bela Bartok letter that he sent to an organization that had just gave him an award. The purpose of the letter that he sent was to correct the errors that the organization made 1. they got the date of the premier the piece wrong 2. why they chose him, incorrectly 3. they should have chosen Zoltan Kodaly 4. he would never accept the award ever, "dead or alive" My question is, should you accept an award for a piece of music of your own, just for the sake of it being your own work, or, should you not accept it, because it is not your best work, and recommend someone who deserves it?
