International Piano Quarterly axed
The long-running success story of Gramophone's quality quarterlies
for the enthusiast has left takeover management bosses apparently unimpressed.
Following the decision last month to close International Opera Collector,
edited by veteran broadcaster Michael Oliver, the new owners of Gramophone,
Haymarket Magazines Ltd (publishers of Autocar and Horticulture
Week), have now axed International Piano Quarterly. To the shock
of a flourishing readership, the Winter 99/2000 issue will not appear. In
the two years of its publication, with a distinguished panel of writers
and consultants drawn from leading pianophiles and critics around the world,
International Piano Quarterly, edited by Harriet Smith, enjoyed
a glittering reputation on both sides of the Atlantic. What chances of reprieve?
Will International Classical Record Collector or new investment
Gramophone Early Music be the next to go? Tell us what you think,
