October 2012

The November issue of Gramophone is now on sale, in which we celebrate the centenary of the great maestro Sir Georg Solti - perhaps the first legendary conductor whose name was made in the recording studio and whose Decca Ring cycle has an iconic status above almost all other opera recordings.

Also this issue, the world's most popular pianist, Lang Lang, looks back over a remarkable decade; baritone Mark Stone writes about running his own record label in the Musician's Diary; The BBC Symphony Orchestra and Edward Gardner record Lutoslawski in our Session Report; and we examine modern master Steve Reich, and the life and legacy of conductor Rafael Kubelík.

Plus, the month’s new classical music releases are reviewed by our expert critics – including our Recording the Month, Piano Concertos Nos 1 and 3, recorded by Leif Ove Andsnes, released on Sony Classical.
