The oldest classical review site turns 25main
Back in January 1996 when only a few geeks were online, molecular biologist Len Mullenger set up MusicWeb International.
Since then it has held steady as a seriously good resource for truly serious reviews – 52,122 of them as of this morning, all of them readable free without a paywall.
Len, now 76, has stepped back from the day-to-day editing but the site has kept up his high standards. The publishing of reviews is looked after by David Barker in New Zealand, while Jonathan Woolf in London sends out releases for review.
We wish them well for the next quarter-century.
