Friday, May 13, 2022

Alexandre Kantorow: the electrifying pianist born to play Saint-Saëns | Samuel Barber: the composer’s complete songs | Bach’s Cantata No 4: the finest recordings named

In the June issue of Gramophone, on sale from May 13, we interview the charismatic French pianist Alexandre Kantorow about his second instalment of Saint-Saëns piano concertos for the record label that believed in him from the start.

Plus, we celebrate a new Samuel Barber album containing the world-premiere recordings of several of his early songs, and talk to the multi-faceted artist Héloïse Werner about her debut solo album, ‘Phrases’.

In this month’s Collection, Andrew Mellor chooses his favourite recording of Bach’s early Cantata No 4, while – as always – the month′s classical releases are reviewed by our panel of expert critics, with the very finest being named Editor′s Choices.
