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.
Strings focus: cellist Laura van Heijden takes the first steps of her professional career; Sheku Kanneh-Mason on managing his career with diabetes; Francesca Dego discusses the experience of recording with Paganini’s violin; behind the scenes at United Strings of Europe; sustainability in instrument manufacturing; Toby Hughes champions the solo double bass; Rachel Podger on the defining moments of her career; and advice for buying a stringed instrument.
