Renaud Capuçon: exploring Elgar with Sir Simon Rattle and Stephen Hough | Danny Driver on recording Ligeti’s Études | Szymanowski’s Stabat mater, which is the best version?

For the March issue of Gramophone we talk to Renaud Capuçon, the French violinist who has recorded two Elgar masterworks for Erato with Sir Simon Rattle and Stephen Hough.

Elsewhere, the British pianist Danny Driver talks about the challenges of recording Ligeti’s 18 Études – a cycle both feared and celebrated for its technical demands.

In addition, in this month’s Collection David Threasher listens to the available recordings of Syzmanowski’s Stabat mater, a mammoth work only now finding new admirers in the West, and chooses his favourite.

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?
