Calling all classical libertines

Classical music has been out-hustled. It lacks the common touch necessary to become a cultural force. Nobody knows about it. The Libertine’s Guide to the Classical Revolution is a book designed to quickly diagnose and treat current problems within the classical music industry.

Here’s what music futurist Greg Sandow wrote about the book:

[The] book is a call to shake things up. In fewer than 100 pages, he makes suggestions — caring, sharp, and precise — for classical radio, classical recording, orchestral concerts, and conservatories. He’s a producer for Boston Public Radio, so he knows media. And he’s a cellist, a founding member of the Cambridge [MA] Philharmonic. So he knows music.

Conductors, musicians, broadcasters, critics and classical fans will all be a little pissed off when they read The Libertine’s Guide — and hopefully fired up, too.
