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 the magazine for the classical collector, as well for the enthusiast starting a voyage of discovery.
The trial issue features an in-depth retrospective on Schubert’s Winterreise, with input from some of the leading performers of the song cycle, including Jonas Kauffman, Ian Bostridge, Gerald Finley and Brigitte Fassbaender.
It also includes an interview with the San Francisco Symphony’s conductor, Michael Tilson Thomas; the New York Philharmonic’s Music Director, Alan Gilbert, discusses Nielsen’s Fifth Symphony; plus we look back at the remarkable career of American soprano Leontyne Price.
Also featured in the trial issue: we analyse the breakthrough works of John Adams, we reconsider Sir Thomas Beecham’s classic recording of Puccini’s La bohème, and we recommend the very best recordings of Rachmaninov’s Symphony No 2.
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.
Gramophone’s first issue was April 1923, and so our April 2023 issue is a special celebratory centenary edition. Features include a major history of the magazine - and by extension of classical recording itself - as well as special archive section reproducing some of the most significant articles from our past century. We also explore why listening to historic recordings is so important, and take a look at ten artists shaping classical music for the future. Meanwhile, Benjamin Grosvenor discusses Schumann’s Kreisleriana in Musician and the Score, Julian Lloyd Webber reflects on Beatrice Harrison in Icons, Rebecca Saunders is our Contemporary Composer of the month, Sibelius’s Symphony No 4 the subject of our Collection, and singer-songwriter Paul Simon our guest in My Music. Plus, as always, our experts review the latest classical releases, with the best named Editor's Choices.
