In the Awards issue of Gramophone, on sale from October 17, we bring you a full report of the biggest classical event of the year – the Gramophone Awards 2019.
We name the 10 category winners, and invite a critic to assess each one – which qualities make these 10 recordings such worthy winners?
We also reveal the recipients of our highly anticipated special awards, including Orchestra of the Year – the only category voted for by the public – and announce the much-coveted Recording of the Year.
Elsewhere, Charlotte Gardner surveys the available recordings of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto and names her favourite, and Andrew Mellor explores Hans Abrahamsen’s ‘patient search for the essence of the material in hand and a will to keep refining the treatment of it’ in our Contemporary Composer feature.
Plus, as always, our world-leading critics review the latest classical music releases on CD, DVD and download – with the best being crowned ‘Editor’s Choice’.
