A first look at the latest issue of Gramophone
A decade after the death of Mstislav Rostropovich, this month’s Gramophone explores the legacy of the great cellist and conductor in terms of the pieces written for him that have transformed the instrument’s repertoire. We also visit composer Harrison Birtwistle to talk about recording the narration for Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, and interview our current Young Artist of the Year, the baritone Benjamin Appl about his new disc on Sony Classical. Our Collection explores the available recordings of Ameriques, Varèse’s vivid depiction of 1920s New York, while other features focus on the multi-talented conductor-composer-pianist André Previn, and the extraordinary music of British composer Thomas Adès. Plus, as always, our world-leading critics review the latest classical music releases, with the best of the month being named Editor’s Choice.
