Here are some last minute additions, cancellations and updates to our programme:
In the off C:N Presentation 'WHO SAID THAT THE FRENCH MARKET WAS INACCESSIBLE?' Jean-Marc Berns of harmonia mundi will replace Didier Martin. (See how accessible it really is!?)
Due to the unlikely coincidence of a family emergency and an accident, two of the three panelists are unfortunately not able to attend the session Changing Minds and Policy Through Cultural Diplomacy, which consequently has to be cancelled.
We aim to hold this session next year (in Rotterdam again by the way)!
We are most happy however that Jessica Lustig will attend Classical:NEXT and agreed to join the workshop on Approaching new listeners online (Session 16).
There is a speaker change for the session "THE GOOD (OLD) DAYS
THE CURRENT STATE OF THE RECORDING INDUSTRY. IT'S REALLY NOT THAT BAD!"
Unfortunately, the chair Steve Long has to leave Classical:NEXT before Friday due to family reasons, Scott Cohen will chair the session. We are most happy to welcome James Jolly from Gramophone magazine to the panel.
We are happy to announce an additional speaker to the session "The Researching Orchestra" chaired by Stefan Rosu:
Peter Peters (The Netherlands), Director of the Maastricht Centre for the Innovation of Classical Music (MCICM) will join us for this most interesting conversation.
For the Project Pitch 'Unkown I Live With You' (Friday 13:30) http://www.classicalnext.com/net/piranha_arts_1/event/unknown_i_live_with Niels Nuijten will replace Krystian Lada as the presenter of this wonderful project.
As we already announced, the "Postcard Pitches" session, which offers quick insights into lesser known art music scenes from around the world http://www.classicalnext.com/net/piranha_arts_1/event/postcard_pitches , will take place without Mr. Rustem Khasanov. We are looking forward to all the other Postcard Pitches.
