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 July issue of Gramophone, on sale from June 11, we celebrate the achievements of Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla – who would have turned 100 this year – when it came to revolutionising the tango. Elsewhere, Rob Cowan shines a light on 20 artists, past and present, whose talents deserve to be better known; and in this month’s Collection, Hugo Shirley is drawn to the rich recorded history of Richard Strauss’s tone poem Don Quixote.
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?
