Classical Digest...kaput?

Post by moldyoldie » Wed Feb 03, 2010 10:29 am

Anyone know what happened to 'em? They've disappeared before, presumably to update since they reappeared within days. This time, it's seemed like forever. :?

Lance, I have been clicking this link for some time and it will not connect, my friend. It must be dead.
I also used Google and could not get any more info on this site.
Hopefully one of our CMGers can help you out on this one. :idea:

Yes, they definitely disappeared several times before. And I think once it took a couple of weeks for them to come back. So don't give up yet!

The link won't open for me either. I think it's a dead link now. We'll see if it becomes resurrected again soon.

Is this the same site as www.classicstoday.com?
They seem to have a monthly digest format. Once I get an ipad I'll spend more time on sites like that one.

No, Slofstra, Classical Digest is (was?) much like a Rotten Tomatoes for classical music (I didn't choose the name, folks!); i.e., you select a composer and composition and they supply a list of prominent recordings with links to reviews and sites with audio samples. They have other features, too. It's quite a convenience, and I'd imagine a similarly extensive undertaking.

I've used this site almost daily for the past decade of my life. It's now been out for well over a month. I emailed their parent company (who's website also seems to be down) and never got a response. Maybe it's time to send a letter to Finland! I wish there was at least a message accompanying the site telling us what's wrong.
