We reported six months ago that the Rhinegold stable of ailing music magazines in London and Manchester was being bought out by the Mark Allen Group, which already owns Gramophone.
The sale was finally signed off this week.
The magazines being sold are: Classical Music, Choir & Organ, International Piano, Teaching Drama and Music Teacher, as well as the British Music Yearbook, British Music Education Yearbook and Music & Drama Expos in London and Manchester.
Allen has also acquired DC Thomson’s stake in Opera Now, which was under licence to Rhinegold.
It’s all about volume now, not content.
