Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
Not a peep from mainstream media when Time Out London got rid of its classical editor early this week. But the Guardian is suddenly outraged that the gay section is going, too.
What’s left? Just tourist traps.
No classical music? No gays? What else is there in London?
Can’t have one without the other, it seems.
Is it clear that the loss of a classical music editor means a loss of classical music coverage, or is it just that classical music events will become part of a more general music events listing, in which case not much is really lost here, it’s only a rearrangement?
