Music Issue 2010: Home, Sweet Studio

Major changes in the music business over the past 20 years should be readily apparent to even the most casual observer. The physical record store is becoming an anomaly; a cute antiquated shop with rows of CDs. People are buying music more and more in a digital format, downloading songs from the comfort of home.

Musical Identity Crisis

Quartetto Gelato would like to change your mind about chamber music. The Canada-based foursome doesn’t just regurgitate the same sonatas and arias that are standard for every classical musician. Quartetto Gelato makes classical music a performance piece. The repertoire includes everything from opera and classical, to folk and gypsy songs, and Neapolitan standards, all done with a passionate...
