But I'm not dead yet!

Alex Ross has an interesting post on classical music's oft-reported demise (and Daniel Wolf has an equally interesting response). Money quote:

The neverending "death of classical music" talk is the wishful thinking of the culture industry. But the fact that orchestra subscriptions, opera ticket sales, and, possibly, record sales have gone up in the last year or two suggests that music from Hildegard to Anna Clyne can still find its audiences without help from TV, magazines, and commercial radio.

Check it out.
