In a special edition of as part of Radio 3's Southbank residency, Tom Service and guests debate the future of musical criticism.
In a special edition of Music Matters, live from London's Southbank, Tom Service and guests debate the future of musical criticism.
What effect has the huge increase in online reviewing had on music criticism generally? Is there still a place for the newspaper music critic? How do reviews affect the decisions of promoters and agents? And how do performers cope with bad reviews? Debating this with Tom are the pianist Peter Donohoe, Hugh Canning, Chief Classical Music Critic of the Sunday Times, the Artistic Director of Welsh National Opera David Pountney, and the Glasgow-based music critic Kate Molleson who writes for the Guardian, the Herald and the Big Issue.
We'll also hear from the artists' agent Andrew Rosner, violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja and the online reviewer and blogger Tim Rutherford-Johnson.
