In the April issue of Gramophone Lindsay Kemp talks to Philippe Jaroussky and his countertenor colleagues about the exciting opportunities that lie ahead, now that the countertenor is an accepted voice in the modern musical world. In addition, Harriet Smith meets with virtuosic pianist Marc-André Hamelin as he prepares to release his new Hyperion disc of music by Medtner and Rachmaninov.
Elsewhere, there's an Icons feature on Dinu Lipatti, a Contemporary Composer piece on George Benjamin, and our annual Summer Festival Guide which highlights the very best live performances across the world. You'll also find much to enjoy in our reviews section which, as always, includes all the latest classical music releases.
