    It's nice to hear this. A lot of it may be people listening to things called e.g. "Calming classical for sleepytime", but I guess that's better than nothing.

    On the whole I think the internet has been a good thing for promoting interest in classical music.

    I sure hope it is - there's a mentality out there that "everything is on the Internet," and that assuredly works against sales of recordings.

    There are now a few classical streamers on Twitch now if you want to check out a livestream.

    You can search up the following Twitch Classical Streamers

    4StringMusic (violin)
    TheViolinHabit (violin/viola)
    Suikunkun (piano)
    TheComplements (piano)

    There are a ton of instrumentalists that play other genres, but these are the couple that I have seen play classical.

    Several months ago, Wigmore Hall had a series of live streams on youtube. Did anyone catch them? I saw a couple greats: 1) Schubert's Winterreise with Mitsuko Uchida (can't remember who the male singer was), and 2) Angela Hewitt playing Bach.
