In Tune?

High Notes?

Harping On?

On Key?

Stay Sharp?
(Stay ♯)

Sax and Violins? (if you want to aim at adult music lovers!)


Why not tell us more about the magazine?

These are all good names but my (imaginary) magazine will concentrate on modern classical music.  Mainly on music of the last 10 years but also on music from 1900s onwards.  It should be witty/interesting and informative!

Appreciative, or investigatory, that is the question . . .

Modern Music.

Sounds better than New Music; but, no doubt, already in use? On Modern Music.

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948

yep.. it has already been used:


 The quarterly journal Modern Music was first published in New York under the title League of Composers Review from February 1924 through January 1925. In April 1925 the title was changed to Modern Music and publication continued uninterrupted under this name until the fall issue of 1946. The purpose of the journal was to inform American professional musicians and the American (and European) public about the new idioms and styles of twentieth-century music. According to the editor Minna Lederman, “Modern Music had no fixed editorial position about any composer, any movement. Its pages recorded derogatory opinions about, as well as homage to, even the greatest figures of the age—Schoenberg and Stravinsky, who were under its most constant observation.”

Each issue of the journal is divided into two parts. The first contains a series of informative articles dealing with the promotion and concerns of contemporary music in the three decades of the journal’s publication: biographies of the leading composers and analyses of their principal works; explanations of contemporary compositional procedures; reports on conditions for music performance and publication in Europe, the Soviet Union and the Americas; the politics of music brought about by the threat and reality of various forms of fascism. The second part contains reviews of contemporary compositions performed in the major musical centers of the United States and in the capitals of Europe and South America. The interpretive and technical skills of performers are not the subjects of these reviews. Rather, Modern Music’s reviewers deal almost exclusively with specific compositions and the analysis of compositional methods. These reviews are followed by the “Scores and Records” column in which the production, growth and availability of contemporary music, both recorded and in print, are examined. Thereafter follows the “Over the Air” column that chronicles both the rise and fall of modern music in radio broadcasting, and the growth of the network giants in the United States, such as the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), the Mutual Broadcasting System (MBS), and the American Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
