Win one, lose one

Thanks to Alex Ross’ posting today, I learned that the world of music writing/journalism has won one and lost one.

We’ve lost one because the Pierre Ruhe has accepted a buyout from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. It sounds as if we’re down another professional music journalist slot for good.

We’ve won one, though, in that in reading this I learned there’s a (relatively) new classical music blog over at the Washington Post run by Anne Midgette.

Since I’ve not found a lot of music bloggers (certainly compared to food bloggers!) it’s good to see another one out there.
