April 2013

The June issue of Gramophone is on sale now, in which we reveal the Hall of Fame 2013. We welcome 50 more worthy performers, producers, engineers and label executives to our list of those whose contributions to classical music recording, whether through artistic excellence, innovation or imagination, have proved the most influential and inspiring.

Also this issue: Arnold Whittall champions the music of György Kurtág for Contemporary Comoposers; David Vickers joins Andrew Parrot's Taverner ensemble recording of Monteverdi's Orfeo in the Session Report; Vox Lumini's Lionel Meunier writes our Musician's Diary; Mike Ashman evaluates the legacy of the late Wolfgang Sawallisch for Icons; Vasily Petrenko decrypts Shostakovich's Leningrad Symphony in The Musician and the Score; and we pay special tribute to conductor Sir Colin Davis.

Plus, the month’s new classical music releases are reviewed by our expert critics – including our Recording of the Month, Berlioz's Les nuits d'été and La mort de Cléopâtre performed by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Robin Ticciati, released on Linn Records.
