Record reviews

Record reviews

May I further plead my case for classical music reviews in Salient. All I ask it that in this year of great recording triumphs, we would possibly share in some of the better pieces.

I don't ask that modern recordings should be replaced, indeed if I may quote my first letter, "I do not advocate a solid block of classical records, but a balance must be maintained".

It also seems a great pity that the last two issues of Salient have not had any sort of record review at all. If the reviewer is experiencing difficulty in obtaining records then I suggest that he notes the method used by the record reviewer in "Craccum".

Furthermore, why one record reviewer? There are several book and film reviewers, why not two record reviewers, then Mr. Hewitson need not worry about having to review records that seem distasteful to him.
