Leonard Slatkin is involving his readers in the development of his upcoming book about the changing landscape of classical music in our time. Every Monday he will post the title of a chapter, along with a summary of the topic he will address therein, on the Commentary section of this site. He encourages readers to contribute thought-provoking questions and suggestions that may inspire him to expand his analysis of the theme at hand. Collaborators will be credited in the final product (or kept anonymous by request).
This week only, Slatkin offers an extended glimpse into the chapter “On the Theater” as a starting point for readers’ questions. Readers may post their responses using the form that follows the text.
