China's Classical Music Scene Is Exploding

Recommended Posts

Alex Ross, the music critic for The New Yorker, recently visited China to check out the music scene first hand:

"Western musicians, administrators, and critics who visit China have lately come away murmuring observations along the lines of “classical music is exploding” and “the future of classical music lies in China.” Between thirty million and a hundred million children are said to be learning piano, violin, or both, depending on which source you consult."

alex, the music critic from the new yorker has done a fine research and it is based on facts. Definitely, the music boom in the republic of china is on a very high graph. You cannot underestimate the potential as far as the music development is concerned keeping in view the passion the millions have to learn pianos and various stringed instruments. China will rule the world in classic and pop compositions.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
