Introducing our November issue, which includes fascinating interviews with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and pianist Igor Levit
In the November 2015 issue of Gramophone you can enjoy a fascinating interview with Sir John Eliot Gardiner, who talks to Lindsay Kemp about why he felt compelled to record Bach's B minor Mass for a second time at the age of 72.
There are also interviews with the enigmatic, ferociously determined young pianist Igor Levit – who has chosen to tackle variations by Bach, Beethoven and Rzewski on his latest album – and Gianandrea Noseda, the Italian conductor committed to championing little-known Italian composers.
Elsewhere in the issue, Editor Martin Cullingford visits the Hallé's impressive new home in Manchester – Hallé St Peter's – and Ariane Todes speaks to cellist Gautier Capuçon about the huge amount of energy required to perform Shostakovich's Cello Concerto, a piece he has just recorded.
Add to this our reviews of the most recent classical releases by our resident panel of critics, as well as a survey of available recordings of Weber's Konzertstück and a thought-provoking Specialist's Guide on music for Remembrance Day and you'll find a November issue that's informative and impossible to put down!
