What will record companies of the future look like? Guest editor Costa Pilavachi examines the classical recording industry’s long history of shrugging off cyclical predictions of its demise; a new generation of listeners turn to online streaming; how the major labels create classical music’s stars; and blurring the boundaries between genres to let artists record the music their fans want.
