In the September issue of Gramophone, Editor Martin Cullingford meets with trumpeter Alison Balsom to talk about her new recording ‘Quiet City’, drawing on 20th century American works from the era where classical and jazz music met and mingled. Meanwhile, to coincide with their new Mozart recording, conductor Sir Roger Norrington and violinist Francesca Dego discuss the joy of performing the composer′s concertos together, while the soprano Fatma Said tells us about her kaleidoscopic new recital release. In Collection, Fabrice Fitch explores recordings of Tallis’s Lamentations of Jeremiah and recommends his favourites, while in Icons, we celebrate the achievements of the illustrious Hollywood String Quartet. Plus, as always, the month′s classical releases are reviewed by our panel of expert critics, with the very finest being named Editor′s Choices.
