'... 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 a decade later, in an ever more quickly changing world, the magazine 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.
