Regular readers of Gramphone will hopefully have noticed some quite significant changes to the magazine as we stepped into 2014. A number of the changes - more and longer reviews, greater coverage of reissues in a new special section devoted to them, the addition of a new feature exploring a catalogue benchmark, the expansion of other pieces including Contemporary Composers - took place in the January issue. The February issue, out now, brings those changes to completion (as much as any magazine rethink should ever feel 'complete', that is). I discussed the background to the changes a little in my editorial last month, which will explain a little more why I have taken the steps I have.
The response from correspondence with readers has been very positive I'm delighted to say, but I also wanted to open up a thread in this forum in which to invite comments here. Please do let me know what you think, what has worked well and where you'd still like to see more change. If there's space, we may publish some of the responses in the letters page of the next issue.
