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 February issue of Gramophone, on sale from January 24, Richard Bratby interviews conductor and orchestra builder John Wilson about his new recording with the Sinfonia of London, while Tim Parry meets the British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor to talk about his new Chopin concertos recording. Plus, Editor-in-Chief James Jolly flies to Vienna to meet the extraordinarily versatile American mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as she prepares to release her ‘Arianna’ recording with Jonathan Cohen’s Arcangelo.

Elsewhere, in Collection David Gutman explores the many and diverse recordings of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, while in Classics Reconsidered David Threasher and Geraint Lewis listen with fresh ears to George Guest’s 1968 recording of Haydn’s Creation Mass from St John’s, Cambridge – does it still deserve its ‘collector’ status? And, as always, 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?
