Fighting the good fight


I keep hearing about my blog posts on publicists – my posts about how bad classical music publicity can be. Sometimes I  hear from publicists, apologizing either after the fact or in advance for problems of the kind I pointed out. (Which were their failure, over and over, to give any real reason why anyone should care about the events they publicize.)


But now I’ve heard from a fellow critic, David Stabler of The Oregonian, in Portland, OR, who’s taken up my crusade. He wrote a fine piece for his paper, looking at publicity from Portland music groups, and finding all the problems I talked about. But he found some well-done publicity, too, and, best of all, he gave his own compelling versions of how the job should be done. Read his piece; I really liked it.
