The January 2018 issue of Gramophone celebrates an exceptional conducting dynasty, the Järvi family – Paavo and Kristjan and their father Neeme, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday. Editor-in-Chief James Jolly met with them all to talk about the life of a maestro and the art of recording.
Also in the issue, conductor and harpsichordist Christophe Rousset talks about the genius of Lully as he prepares to release his recording of Alceste, conductor Martyn Brabbins talks about his new recording of Tippett symphonies and about settling in to his new post at English National Opera, and in this month’s Collection Hugo Shirley explores the available recordings of Giordano’s Andrea Chénier and recommends his favourites.
Plus: a round-up of the latest classical music apps, and - as always - our expert critics review the latest classical releases, with the best being named Editor’s Choices.
