Making a future in the industry
Classical Music magazine sits at the heart of the profession, providing news, opinion, resources and practical advice that supports professional musicians and those who serve the industry to build and sustain successful careers. Our team of dedicated editors and contributors all have backgrounds in music and journalism and we are passionate about the future of classical music.
We champion the achievements of those working in music-making across genres and campaign for increased support in tackling the challenges that arise from this rapidly changing political, financial, technological and social landscape.
How is the music industry responding to Covid-19? In our new issue, we uncover the experiences of performers, artist managers and organisations across the classical sector; how venues are coping with widespread cancellations and closures; crisis funds available to freelance musicians; and a look at European initiatives to alleviate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
Plus, Boris Giltburg takes on the Beethoven piano sonatas, finding ways to evoke live performance despite coronavirus; the new London cafe opening its doors to musicians; Artist Manager of the Year, Helen Sykes; Ryan Bancroft prepares to take the reins as the BBC NOW's new chief conductor; sound artist and pianist Belle Chen; Garsington Opera’s learning and participation projects; composer and turntablist Shiva Feshareki; and how Cleveland Orchestra found a home on the airwaves.
