In this month’s Gramophone we celebrate the enduring legacy of the great Swedish soprano Birgit Nilsson, talk to British baritone Roderick Williams about recording Schubert’s Winterreise in English, and meet with the Director of Music at St John’s College, Cambridge, Andrew Nethsingha, to discuss his choir’s latest projects and plans.
Meanwhile, Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder is the subject of this month’s Collection feature (we name the leading versions) and, as always, our world-leading critics review the latest classical music releases, with the best being named Editor’s Choices – and the best of all being crowned the Recording of the Month.
