On lebrecht live this month the issue is defeatism Why are we downhearted in the arts? Why so defensive? Depressed by the endless fight for sufficient funding, the decline of public education and the idiocy of mass media, the arts are withdrawing into a stockade, engaged in the management of decline. 'To hold what we have' is the last line of defence. But are things really so bad? Isn't it possible that the tide has turned, that new media are creating a new audience, that arts are on the threshold of a renaissance? Leading players will give their views on lebrecht.live.
