Take a closer look at what's inside the August issue
In the August 2017 issue of Gramophone, on sale from July 14, we explore Elgar’s reputation abroad, where his ‘Englishness’ has often led to his music being underappreciated. Andrew-Farach Colton speaks to Daniel Barenboim, Vasily Petrenko, David Zinman and Alisa Weilerstein, among others, to see if attitudes are finally changing.
Elsewhere in Gramophone, 150 years after Granados’s birth, Peter Quantrill presents a vivid portrait of a composer simultaneously Catalan and cosmopolitan. Plus, as Vladimir Ashkenazy turns 80, Jeremy Nicholas interviews the pianist and conductor whose impressive and eclectic career shows no signs of waning.
As always, in addition to our regular features – which this month profile the legendary conductor-arranger Leopold Stokowski and the British composer Brian Elias – Gramophone brings you our expert critics’ opinions of the newest classical releases. Get ready for a great read!
