Introducing the August 2021 issue of Gramophone, featuring the great tenors of the past – by the stars of today

Friday, July 9, 2021

The great tenors of the past – Caruso, Corelli, Di Stefano and Lanza – remembered by the stars of today: Roberto Alagna, Joseph Calleja and Rolando Villazón

In the August issue of Gramophone, on sale from July 9, we celebrate the great tenors of the past by talking to the great tenors of today.

Elsewhere, we highlight the legacy of Josquin Des Prés, 500 years after his death; we also present our 10 contenders for the Gramophone Awards 2021’s Orchestra of the Year and, in this month’s Collection, explore the varied recorded history of Brahms’s Double Concerto.

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?
