I think that you are being unfair to the Tippett Foundation. Tippett himself in his will specified quite explicitly that his unpublished works were not to be performed until 50 years after his death.

Had the Tippett Foundation and Will Trust adhered to the terms of the will then we would not have heard the Symphony until 2048.

In fact the Foundation and Will Trust, by unanimous vote of its members, decided to overrule the terms of the will. As a consequence the decision was-reached because they believed the composer had been over severe and that the Symphony deserved performance.

We actually owe them our gratitude for allowing us to hear the symphony and reach our own conclusions.
