Classical Music is the only dedicated magazine for the Classical Music industry in the UK, with features, news and reviews for performers, agents, managers, promoters along with anyone with an interest in the music world.
We provide unique insight into what’s going on in the sector, with regular coverage of festivals, competitions, courses and concerts, as well as key career information for musicians and details of new appointments. Classical Music has remained at the heart of the profession since its foundation in 1976 and continues to keep readers at the forefront of the latest developments in the industry.
In Classical Music’s Winter issue, we offer a sneak peek into the ABO’s upcoming Conference, with a conference overview and look inside the newly renovated Bristol Beacon, which will host this year’s event. Meanwhile, our cover feature takes a look behind the scenes at the creative team behind the Bradley Cooper’s Bernstein Biopic, Maestro. Elsewhere in the issue, editor Florence Lockheart chats with Bath Philharmonia music director Jason Thornton about his orchestra’s work with young carers and sits down with Sound and Music CEO Will Dutta to reflect on his plans for the charity. Thomas Lydon explores the opportunities created when orchestras and schools join forces, while Royal Academy of Music principal Jonathan Freeman-Attwood offers his optimistic perspective on maintaining music’s global outlook. Positive change is also the subject of Coriander Stuttard’s feature focusing on Black Lives in Music’s Recruiting Classical programme, helping global majority musicians find places on the extra work lists of the UK’s top orchestras. Holst Society chairman Chris Cope tells us how the organisation is taking on Holst’s considerable legacy and we also hear from psychologist and lead singer of The Boo Radleys Simon Rowbottom with his advice on how to protect your mental health while on tour. Plus, our usual news, opinions and focuses on funding, venues, touring and more.
