Is classical music a lifestyle?


Steinway owned ArchivMusic are doing some interesting things. These now include launching Listen, a new $4.95 bi-monthly print publication which is described as 'a lifestyle magazine for classical music'. But isn't that what Haymarket Publications set out to create when they ruined the Gramophone?

Wow, a print magazine. I love print, but a magazine startup is a great way to lose a lot of money fast. (Especially one that sounds like an idea that's already been tried so many times.)

I wish they'd spend one-fifth the money they'll spend on this magazine and build out ArkivMusic.com as a richer community of listeners with lots more rare and out of print music, exclusive new performances, downloads, a way to interact with other listeners and discover new music, user reviews and reactions, etc.
