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.
In the January issue of Gramophone, on sale from December 28, we bring you a fascinating cover feature on the new generation of young pianists who are giving the ‘greats’ from the Golden Age a run for their money.
Elsewhere, as Kirill Karabits celebrates a 10-year partnership with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the conductor tells Richard Bratby about a project that’s close to his heart: recording the music of fellow Ukrainian Boris Lyatoshinsky for Chandos.
In addition, Beethoven’s Waldstein Sonata in C, Op 53, is an extraordinary technical challenge for any pianist and, in this month’s Collection, Patrick Rucker explores the recorded catalogue of this monumental work.
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?
