£20.95
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Legendary maestro Leonard Slatkin provides personal insights and offers his ideas to solve the current dilemmas of classical music.



As the new millennium poses some of the greatest challenges to the relevance of the art form, Slatkin reflects on the modern evolution of classical music and presents ways for both music lovers and musicians alike to navigate these uncertain times. Classical Crossroads: The Path Forward for Music in the 21st-Century addresses a wide range of relevant and provocative topics such as performance in the era of COVID-19, shrinking audiences, the lack of classical music in public education, broken audition systems, technology replacing live concerts, and the lack of diversity in the classical music world. While the new millennium has provided great obstacles, Slatkin emphasizes that there are also new opportunities-if there was ever a time for change in classical music, that time is now.
