Seen and Heard International is MusicWeb International's live review section. Established in 1999, we now have more than 60 internationally based correspondents who publish 25 to 40 reviews of concert, opera and ballet performances weekly as well as other articles of musical interest. We report from most of the major venues in the UK and from many others in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

With an additional output of more than 50 disc reviews every week at MusicWeb International, we are probably the most comprehensive online classical music review magazine anywhere in the world.
