One Reason Critics Matter


  1. Gary Panetta says:

    I agree that the critics/bloggers who have replaced traditional newspaper critics occupy a narrower, less stable platform than that of their predecessors.
    Nevertheless, informed discussion, critique and debate are taking place on sites like which, as you already know, covers classical music in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a former Bay Area resident, I can tell you this site far surpasses coverage by the San Francisco Chronicle. It’s well-edited and not half-baked, unlike a lot of things on the Internet.
    Perhaps sites like this one could in addition develop a presence on a local radio station or other more general media outlets — provided, of course, any media outlets with a general audience are left in the future.
