“NewMusic.News is a labour of Love project. As a composer and performer myself, I can probably fill pages and pages with laments about the demise of the Music Critic institution in the big media: newspapers, public radio, local news and many other places. Of course, this will be a slightly funny lament because artists are usually at odds with critics and the atrocities of these battles are in some cases, legendary. However, it seems that we simply can’t do without each other. The artist very often needs pointed and professional feedback and the critic… Well, the critic is a person who loves the Art they are writing about. I choose to firmly believe that.”
Our mandate is very simple – we will concern ourselves with music written and performed in the 21st Century. We will review and amplify also new and interesting recordings made in the 21st Century. We will profile composers and performers who we think deserve more exposure and recognition.
We will also occasionally stray from music into other arts, almost as an aside remark in our life in Art.
Welcome and enjoy!
P.S. You want to submit music for review? We thought of that and we have a special page for you to do just that. We are smart like that, you see?
