At a time when music media everywhere are under pressure from online media, a new magazine for classical music has been launched in Russia. It is funded by the Irina Arkhipova Foundation and edited by the respected Elena Yezerskaya. The launch cover looks pretty strong.
One stated purpose is to report on some of the country’s outlying orchestras, opera houses and festivals that never get mainstream attention. te magazine launched on Friday with a modest print run of 3,000 copies.
