Hi Beth,

Would you recommend subscribing to The Strad?  At $25/issue and $110/year it certainly is up there as far as a magazine can cost.  Any thoughts?

Best,

Ray

Thanks Anne, Beth;

Looks like I will wait until I can make it down to Vancouver (or win the lottery-but first I would have to buy a ticket).  Thanks for the thoughts.

Best,

Ray

The Strad has a hundred plus years of back issues archived, but access it costly, too. I have been given a subsciption to the Strad for the second year in a row as a birthday present from my husband, and I enjoy reading it very much. But it is a real luxury. One option might be to read it at a the library. The central music library in Munich, where I live, has a subscription. You might read it en bloc when visiting a location that has a subscription.

Not at that price! I would just go online and read the archives. Is it so expensive because of delivery costs?
