4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insights into a world we thought was innocent, 21 Nov 1999
This review is from: When the Music Stops: Managers, Maestros and the Corporate Murder of Classical Music (Paperback)
It begins as a historical review, but these shadows are merely to underscore that the world of classical music has become all business, that the profit motive reigns supreme, and that personal power for its own sake is sometime more sought after than artistic merit. Chilling, but fascinating. The danger forecast is the death of musical organizations like opera companies and orchestras and the rise of the entertainment power center. A long read, but well worth the effort. Negatives; Too many remote footnotes. Lebrecht's malice sometimes shows through his objectivity.
