German Record Critics’ Award
Not only hearing habits – from vinyl, via CD, to streaming – change. Music criticism is also changing: is high-end equipment necessary to rate music? Do the social media make serious reviews superfluous?
A quartet of critics – Torsten Fuchs (music journalist for, inter alia, Jam FM and rap2soul.de), Manfred Gillig-Degrave (music journalist, inter alia, co-founder and long-standing editor-in-chief / publisher of MusikWoche), Fritz Werner Haver (music journalist for, inter alia FAZ, Welt and various music magazines) and Edo Reents (arts editor of the FAZ; invited) – will hold a discussion with the audience using examples from recommended new releases.
A cooperation between the German Record Critics’ Award e.V. (PdSK), Musikmesse and HiFi-Profis.
