Gramophone’s new composer guides
Wednesday, March 5, 2014
Introducing our invaluable new guides to the finest recordings of music by your favourite composers
One of the most interesting features of the new Gramophone website are the Composer pages. Click on the COMPOSERS tab (above) and you will be taken directly to the COMPOSERS homepage. At the top of COMPOSERS homepage is a search box where you can type the name of any composer whose music you are interested in exploring. Alternatively you can select one of the 100 of the most high-profile composers from the list below the search box.
Once you have selected a composer you will be transported to that composers' own page. Every composer whose music has been reviewed in Gramophone since 1983 has their own unique page featuring a Latest Reviews carousel, allowing you to quickly discover the latest recordings of music by that composer and to go directly to reviews of each album. When a composer is mentioned in any new feature, blog or news story a link to this article will also appear on the relevant composer pages, so you can easily keep track of the latest news about your favourite composers.
And there's more. When a recording wins a Gramophone Award this will be listed in the Gramophone Awards section of every relevant composers' page. Additional recording recommendations are also listed if, for example, a recording is awarded an Editor's Choice or is otherwise essential listening.
The 100 most popular composers all have full biographies on their composer pages as well as a selection of in-depth features from the Gramophone archive.
So, click on the COMPOSERS tab and start exploring!
