If you've already subscribed but you still only see the first few sentences of each article, then you may be missing your welcome email which explains how to log in to our subscription website.

Yes we can help. If you're already a subscriber and you've lost, mislaid or forgotton your password, or if you've forgotten how to log in to our separate subscription site, you can reset your password and have us resend instructions to login here.

 

How can I advertise in M&V?

We have a page dedicated to advertising information. Please look at this page for further information, and then contact us if you can't see the information you need there.

 

How can I find a particular article in M&V?

Music & Vision has published at least one article every day since 1 January 1999, so thousands of articles are available. You can use the search box on our home page to find particular locations, artists, composers, works etc.

Alternatively, you'll find a complete and up-to-date list of our articles (in chronological order, most recent first) on our contents pages (one page per year of publication), and you should be able to use your browser software's 'find' or 'search' facility to locate keywords in our article titles and descriptions.

Alternatively, our home page lists everything published during the last month, so if you visit us at least once per month you shouldn't miss anything.

Finally, for those too busy to visit regularly, our customisable email alert service will send you emails as often as once a day, or as seldom as once every 90 days, with an overview of the magazine's content during this period. You can configure your alerts by subscribing to the full version of the magazine and then visiting your preferences page.

 

How can I watch your video extracts?

We use an Adobe Flash applet to stream video to your browser. Flash is normally built into most modern computers, but if it's not available on yours, you should be able to download a player or browser plugin from adobe.com

To view the video clips provided with our DVD reviews and occasional other articles, you need a reasonably fast modern computer. To hear the associated sound, you'll need a correctly-configured sound card and speakers (or headphones).

If you have a slow connection to the internet, it will still be possible to watch these video extracts, but they may take some time to download.

Unfortunately most video clips in articles published before 2013 will not currently operate with Apple's iPhone or iPad products, but they should play normally on other smartphones and tablet devices.

Some older reviews and articles (published before March 2008) use Apple Quicktime format video, and you may need to download a Quicktime player from apple.com in order to watch them.

 

How can I listen to your music extracts?

Most of our CD reviews are illustrated with short sound extracts. The magazine uses an Adobe Flash applet to stream MP3 format audio to your computer's browser. The requirements are the same as for video extracts (above).

Older reviews and articles (published before 22 March 2008) use Real Audio G2 format to stream sound extracts to your computer. You may need to download a special player from real.com to hear these older sound clips.

 

How do I get my book, CD, DVD or other items reviewed?

Please read our special page about sending review material.

 

Can you help publicise our concert?

Yes - concert listings are free of charge in Music & Vision although we cannot guarantee to publish all material received. Please use the special form to send us details of forthcoming concerts, and try to provide at least one method for other readers to obtain further information - preferably a website address, email address or phone number. For better exposure, please send details well in advance of the event - preferably at least a month before.

For higher profile coverage, please consider advertising on the Music & Vision website.

 

Will you review our concert?

We do not have the resources to provide a truly global concert review service. However, if you can arrange for a reviewer to attend and write about your concert, we will consider the review for publication.

 

Can I write for Music & Vision?

Music & Vision's Editor, Basil Ramsey, extends an open invitation to anyone who can write knowledgeably about music to submit articles for consideration. We accept copy in most usual formats. Please use our contact form to make initial contact.

We also publish readers' letters.
