In the November issue of Gramophone we interview extraordinary young Italian pianist Beatrice Rana about her new recording of Ravel and Stravinsky.
We also meet the Czech-based Pavel Haas Quartet to discuss their surprising foray into Shostakovich.
Closer to home, we ask John Butt about his revelatory vision for Handel’s Samson, a work he has just recorded with his Dunedin Consort & Players.
Elsewhere, Rob Cowan delves into the immense discography of Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony and recommends his top recording, and Andrew Farach-Colton surveys the engagingly expressive output of composer George Tsontakis, a giant of the American contemporary music scene.
Plus, as always, our world-leading critics review the latest classical music releases – with the best being crowned ‘Editor’s Choice’.
