The last classical critic in Canadamain
Word reaches me from Toronto that John Terauds, the only fulltime classical music critic in English-speaking Canada, has been switched to the business desk of the Star. The paper has also shut down his music-world blog, SoundMind.
A sign of impoverished times, perhaps, but also a significant step in the closing of Canada’s cultural mind.
