Latest Issue

In the November issue of Gramophone, on sale from November 2, the acclaimed tenor Ian Bostridge contributes to our pages with a self-penned survey of the art of the song, culminating in an account of his new recital recording with Sir Antonio Pappano which combines war poetry and song to visceral effect.

Elsewhere, Andrew Mellor meets Edward Gardner in Bergen and discovers a conductor who is determined to push his players forward with new repertoire including Berlioz’s Grande Messe des morts, and Richard Bratby catches up with cellist Daniel Müller-Schott in London to discuss the Proms, unusual transcriptions for his instrument – and street art.
