In the December issue of Gramophone, on sale from December 2, we celebrate all things Christmassy! Click on any of the images above for a closer look...
Our cover star Alison Balsom talks about her ongoing mission to transcribe, arrange and commission music for the trumpet – as witness her new Christmas album ‘Jubilo’.
Conductor Graham Ross, meanwhile, talks about performing music for Epiphany – part of his ongoing recording journey through the church year with his formidable Choir of Clare College, Cambridge.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without presents, and if you’re after inspiration, look no further than our Critics’ Choice feature in which each writer names his or her favourite recording from the past 12 months.
And don’t miss our excellent reviews section which, this issue, includes our Christmas round-up – the ultimate guide to the latest seasonal music recordings. Happy Christmas!
