HIGH ANXIETY
There’s been an upsurge of denial, people insisting that classical music isn’t in serious trouble. But two writers — making that claim in response to a silly online essay that said classical music was actually dead — write with such high emotion that, just maybe, they’re anxious about classical music themselves.


THE CLASSICAL AUDIENCE
In past decades, it was much younger. And in past centuries, it was lively, shouting at the stage and applauding the moment it heard music it liked. I’ll be talking about all this in a lecture I’m giving at the Juilliard Doctoral Forum on February 25. Not open to the public, but I’ll record it, and put it online.

WIDER HORIZONS
Classical musicians, in the emerging new classical world, don’t just play classical music. One of my guest bloggers, Lara Downes, a classical pianist, is unveiling a new project, in which she evokes one of the greatest jazz singers, Billie Holiday. She writes about it eloquently.
