The present and future of classical music journalism and media

Conference 2012

Session 2 :


Chaired by Carsten Dürer (Germany), Editor in Chief, PIANONews & ENSEMBLE
with Oliver Condy (UK), editor of BBC Music Magazine;
Jessicca Duchen (UK), music journalist for The Independent

Journalism and the media have undergone radical changes in recent years and will continue to do so in the future. What is the current situation? What can we expect from classical music journalists at a time when the landscape has shifted toward PR-media and internet platforms? These are vital questions which require answers. Otherwise we risk losing the most important resource we have: our listeners, who also constitute the readership for classical music publications.
