Begun in 1977 by publisher Joel Flegler , Fanfare was a protest against the predominant style of classical record magazines existing at that time. Flegler wanted ‘serious record collectors’ not only to have access to a periodical that would review a huge quantity of new classical recordings informatively, but also to have the opportunity to demonstrate that classical record reviews could be intelligent without being stuffy and dry. The result is a magazine that has gone from strength to strength throughout the world as "a source of tough but fair opinions of new CDs."
