Although the UK title of the book refers to "the corporate murder of classical music", the art form has shown continuing signs of life since 1997. The book focuses too much on the problems, although what Mr Lebrecht has to say is always interesting.

The author's blog, Slipped Disc, provides a daily update, with almost overwhelming detail, for those wishing to track the latest developments. ( )
