In the March issue of Gramophone, on sale from February 22, Riccardo Chailly’s 40-year relationship with Decca is being celebrated with a bumper box-set documenting his finest moments on record; Neil Fisher meets him in Milan.
Meanwhile, in our two additional features, Kirill Gerstein meets with Jeremy Nicholas to discuss his new recording of Busoni’s Piano Concerto, and Gabriel Jackson tells Editor Martin Cullingford about the new Passion he has composed for the Choir of Merton College, Oxford.
Elsewhere, David Gutman surveys the current recordings of Gershwin’s ‘American folk opera’, Porgy and Bess, in this month’s Collection, and Richard Whitehouse investigates the impossible-to-categorise output of Charles Wuorinen.
Plus, as always, our world-leading critics review the latest classical music releases on CD, DVD and download – with the best being crowned ‘Editor’s Choice’.
