Questions concerning representation are at the forefront of public and scholarly debate about classical music. What, and whom, does classical music represent in the twenty-first century? How is it represented in the arts and media? How does representation operate in the classical music industry? Efforts are being made to cultivate new audiences, diversify programming and ensembles, and experiment with new performance formats and technologies, yet it is clear there is still work to be done to achieve equal opportunities and inclusion.

This Special Collection, guest edited by Dr. Adrian Curtin (University of Exeter) and Dr. Adam Whittaker (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire), investigates contemporary artistic and media representation of classical music as well as representation in the classical music industry and considers how these various forms of representation intersect. Articles encompass a broad range of art forms and media, including film, dance, theatre, literary and graphic novels, music, social media, and online streaming, and also engage key issues of representation within the classical music industry.
