The April 2011 issue of Gramophone – now on sale – focuses on the often unfairly dismissed world of film music. In a 25-page special, Gramophone celebrates the art form, paying tribute to the life and legacy of John Barry, offering an indepth look at the music of Ennio Morricone (in a profile written by Hans Zimmer) and exploring the history of French film music. We also list our ten must-hear soundtracks.
Also in this issue:
- This month's Gramophone Collection looks at recordings of Vaughan Williams's Sinfonia antartica
- Pianist Yevgeny Sudbin talks to Gramophone as he embarks on his Beethoven concerto cycle with the Minnesota Orchestra
- Leading vocal conductor Paul Hillier reflects on the genius of Schütz in the Diary
- The latest news and reviews from the audio world in our High Fidelity section, and the most recent developments from the world of web music in James Jolly's Tune Surfing.
- Plus more than 140 reviews, including of course our Editor's Choice selection featuring the leading releases of the month.
