As the world’s #1 classical music and opera website we shall continue to bring you the latest goings-on to the best of our ability through the difficult weeks and months ahead.
Visits to the site have risen by 25 to 30 percent in the past week alone as mainstream media abandon arts coverage and an embattled music sector seeks information and consolation from an independent source.
This is not easy. We are working around the clock to keep apace with unprecedented shocks and events, rubbing our eyes at times in amazement as the tide rolls in and out.
It is not all bad news. There are stories of courage, generosity and hope. There is music to share. There is love.
We would like to express our thanks to all who visit us in these troubled times, and to our loyal advertisers and partners. We have more than 2 million monthly readers. To ensure tghat you see all of our posts, follow @NLebrecht on Twitter, or ‘like’ the Slipped Disc Facebook page.
Stay with us. It may be a rocky ride, but there is light in the world and plenty of room for happiness and creativity.
Enough of that.
Let’s get the day on its feet.
