In the September issue of Gramophone we speak to the pianist Igor Levit about his new Sony Classical album which pairs Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes and Fugues with Ronald Stevenson’s rarely performed Passacaglia on DSCH.
Elsewhere, to celebrate the centenary of Malcolm Arnold, Richard Bratby explores how the British composer’s reputation is rightly being reassessed.
And in this month’s Collection, we recommend the best recording of Beethoven’s String Quartet Op 130.
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?
