I was shocked to see that the July issue of Gramophone devotes ~20 pages to the upcoming Proms season, as compared with only ~50 pages to reviews of recordings and ~30 pages of 'other'. I used to be under the impression that Gramophone was devoted to recorded music (the clue is in the title!). In recent years the coverage of new recordings by Gramophone has become less and less adequate, particularly outside mainstream repertoire. And the Proms season is receiving more than adequate coverage through other media, direct mail and e-mail. Please don't let what used to be a primary source for informed comment on all new recorded releases continue its slide towards being just another general classical music magazine. Otherwise you will lose long-term subscribers.
