Jakub Józef Orliński: a countertenor for our times | Imogen Cooper: the pianist on music and memory | Verdi’s Rigoletto: which are the finest recordings? | Season Preview: a guide to the best events worldwide

In the October issue of Gramophone, on sale from September 10, we speak to the Polish countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński about his new album for Erato on which he explores rare 18th-century arias and motets.

Elsewhere, Imogen Cooper tells us of her desire to revisit piano pieces from her student days for her new Chandos recording.

And in this month’s Collection, we recommend the best recording of Verdi’s game-changing opera, Rigoletto.

We also reveal which albums are the top three in each category for this year's Gramophone Classical Music Awards. We will reveal the winners in each recording category on September 22 on our website. 

Plus, don’t miss our expert critics’ opinions of the newest classical releases: which will be named Editor’s Choice, and which overall recording will be crowned Recording of the Month?
