JISC Collection

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.

Latest Issue

For the October issue of Gramophone, on sale from September 6, James Jolly speaks to the German violinist Christian Tetzlaff about his new Ondine recording of the violin concertos by Beethoven and Sibelius, his passion for chamber music, and how he has found a new balance in his musical life.

Elsewhere, Jeremy Dibble writes of how the discovery of little-known Stanford scores have cast this British composer in a new light, and Peter Quantrill travels to Budapest to meet Iván Fischer as he and his Budapest Festival Orchestra record Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.

In addition, for this issue’s Collection, Jeremy Nicholas surveys the available recordings of Saint-Saëns’s witty Carnival of the Animals and chooses his ‘one to own’ version.
