The Musical Times is published quarterly, it says itself that it only wishes to publish the most up-beat and lively contributions to the classical music debates in an attractive format, which it hopes will set it apart from other magazines in the same sector which have more of a concentrated academic format.
This magazine is an appealing unique elegant publication; it is made up of lengthy articles which focus on interesting topics in the classical music scene. This magazine would be the perfect read for the avid fans of classical music who like to think more deeply about the reasons behind the music, as well as read about interesting stories featuring the very best early composers that they may never have heard before. All the articles are expertly researched and presented in an intellectual style, with footnotes in the margins giving the reader an opportunity to read more about the subject in other journals if they wish to know more.
We like this magazine because it brings the reader more than just gossip and rumours about the latest pop musicians in our charts like so many other modern music based publications. Instead it likes to provide a more high-brow and academic look at the best composers and musicians from days gone by. This magazine would ideally suit the older generation of music fans, who prefer to read about Mozart or Stravinsky rather then Justin Bieber or Cheryl Cole. An example of the types of articles features in The Musical Times could be an in-depth look at why Beethoven used silences in many of his pieces. These articles will give the reader something to ponder which is both interesting and entertaining.
