Gramophone has been the world’s leading authority on classical music since 1923. With 13 issues a year every edition will enrich your classical music knowledge with in-depth interviews and features about composers past and present, plus established and new artists from across the globe. Each issue includes over 100 reviews of the latest CDs, downloads, DVDs and books all written by our globally acclaimed panel of expert critics. Gramophone is an essential magazine for students and performers of classical music.
Please note: This is the North American edition of Gramophone. It includes all the pages of the UK edition and also a specialised 16 page supplement each issue, “Sounds of America”. This details the most exciting musical developments across North America as well as reviewing the most interesting specialist American releases.
For the March issue of Gramophone, on sale from February 24, we talk to Renaud Capuçon, the French violinist who has recorded two Elgar masterworks for Erato with Sir Simon Rattle and Stephen Hough. Elsewhere, the British pianist Danny Driver talks about the challenges of recording Ligeti’s 18 Études – a cycle both feared and celebrated for its technical demands. In addition, in this month’s Collection David Threasher listens to the available recordings of Syzmanowski’s Stabat mater, a mammoth work only now finding new admirers in the West, and chooses his favourite.
Plus, don’t miss our expert critics’ opinions of the newest classical releases: which will be named Editor’s Choice, and which overall recording will be crowned Recording of the Month?
