Introducing the January 2023 issue of Gramophone, celebrating Rachmaninov at 150

Friday, December 23, 2022

Rachmaninov: the great pianist and composer – in America and on record | The King's Singers and Fretwork record Byrd and Weelkes | The best recordings of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto

In the January 2023 issue of Gramophone, on sale from January 4, we offer up a double feature celebrating Rachmaninov at 150: in the first, Jeremy Nicholas surveys this ‘most complete’ musician who excelled as composer, conductor and pianist; in the second, Philip Ross Bullock explores the startlingly original works that emerged from Rachmaninov’s final years in exile.

Elsewhere, as Edward Breen discovers, The King’s Singers and Fretwork have joined forces to record a fascinating album marking 400 years since the deaths of both Byrd and Weelkes – plus, in our annual Competitions Guide, we present the best competitions across the UK, Europe, the US and further afield.

Finally, in this month’s Collection, Mark Pullinger chooses his favourite recording of Tchaikovsky’s evergreen Violin Concerto, and, as always, the month's classical releases are reviewed by our panel of expert critics, with the very finest being named Editor's Choices.
