    Farewell Vivaldi ?

    It has been reported on rightsnet that the PIP on-hold music has been changed.
    https://www.rightsnet.org.uk/forums/...d/14315/#68077

    Apparently it's now Beethovens' 'Sonata’s tragic sonorities' (Sonata No.8, AKA 'The Pathétique').

    Is this some kind of 'in' joke?
    Who are the tragic, pathetic ones; the claimants or the DWP?

    I'm not sure if the ESA on-hold music had been changed as well, but would suspect so.
    (I might give them a ring later and find out).

    EDIT - A later post says that it is Beethoven, but not that particular sonata. No doubt someone will identify it soon (They could use Shazam?).

    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Sitting for the last 20 minutes listening to Vivaldi, so no change there then.
