A decade of Slipped Discmain
In 2010, Slipped Disc was hosted by artsjournal.com and the leader in classical music news was Alex Ross.
A decade on, www.slippedisc.com has 1.7 million monthly readers, at least four times as many as any other site.
Although we lost much of our backlog when the site went independent in 2014, here are some highlights of the decade:
2010 Boris boosts music education. It practically wrecked his career.
2011 Musicians seek boycott of Israel Phil BBC Prom. All the usual suspects signed on.
2012 Federer faces Beethoven. Won in straight sets.
2013 JFK airport agents destroyed my flutes. The post went viral on Reddit, crashing the AJ site and prompting our move to www.slippedisc.com
2014 Jonas Kaufmann in love. You read it here first.
2015 Ten men sang most at the Met. No women.
2016 The orchestra with the most married couples. Then the conductor got divorced.
2017 Kissin weds. Just another exclusive.
2018 Maestro gets fired. Usual reason.
2019 Yuja Wang. It just got shorter.
