Well here it is, the first day for Deceptive Cadence, NPR’s newest music blog (cue the trumpet fanfares and pealing bells!).

We could have called it simply NPR’s Classical Music Blog, but the phrase “classical music” carries so much baggage — dead, old, white, European. It is, in a way, its own worst enemy.

Instead, we came up with a moniker that suggests a more open-ended view of music that is not only still breathing, thank you, but vigorously evolving.


I’ll be checking this one out, of course … curious to see what it’ll bring.
