English | 140 pages | True PDF | 15.2 MB
In the January 2017 issue of Gramophone we welcome in the New Year with a feast of fascinating features. First up, there’s our cover story on Arturo Toscanini, the Italian conductor who made a profound impact on the relationship between classical music and broadcasting and recording; a century-and-a-half after his birth, Richard Osborne discusses the maestro’s life and legacy.
There’s also an insightful, entertaining profile piece by Lindsay Kemp on the countertenor Iestyn Davies – in demand as a recitalist, opera singer and West End star, and now due to release a new recording of solo Bach cantatas.
We’ve also included an Icons tribute to singer Grace Bumbry on her 80th birthday, an informative Contemporary Composer feature on the Russian-born, American-based Lera Auerbach, and a thoroughly researched Collection by Fabrice Fitch on Biber’s Mystery Sonatas.
Add to all that our substantial reviews section, which includes all the latest classical music releases, and you’ll find a January issue that’s bound to help you beat the post-Christmas blues!
