About Us

MusicWeb International was founded by Dr Len Mullenger in 1995, as a website for the William Alwyn Society, and hosted on the servers of the University of Coventry. From these humble beginnings, it has developed, purely on a volunteer basis, into the largest non-commercial classical music resource on the web. You can read a detailed history of Musicweb here.

Every weekday we post at least six new classical CD and DVD reviews – there are more than 58,000 in the archive.

MusicWeb is not a subscription site. To keep it free, please support us by purchasing discs from our partners AmazonUK, Presto Classical & ArkivMusic, via the sales links on the review pages.
