Classical Music Daily

'... we have faith in this unique venture as people everywhere, and from every strata of society, come within the power and influence of good music.' - Basil Ramsey, writing in 1998

After three months of planning, design and software development at the end of 1998, Music & Vision tentatively launched its daily online classical music magazine service on 1 January 1999 - a joint venture between music publisher and magazine editor Basil Ramsey and internet consultant Keith Bramich. The first months proved quite difficult, as the magazine, billed as a 'classical music magazine in daily parts', struggled to find its way in a world in which the classical music business hadn't yet come to terms with the internet or its possibilities. Readership grew slowly and new writers appeared only occasionally.

More than two decades later, in an ever more quickly changing world, the magazine (with a rebrand in 2019 as Classical Music Daily), holds its own amongst a large number of high quality online publications, and receives a steady stream of material for publication from writers in many different countries.
