The UK-based Classical Music magazine, launched in 1976, has gone digital-only from today, with a new website, and an editorial advisory board comprised of the serving heads of British music intitutions, which is hardly a guarantee of good journalism.
The magazine, when it started out, contained bold and challenging reporting. I remember being commissioned, around 1980, to write an account of the unhealthy links between British orchestras and festivals and the thriving tobacco industry. I did my best to smoke them out.
Those days are long gone and now so is the magazine.
