July 2013

The August 2013 issue of Gramophone is now on sale! Inside, the great Alfred Brendel writes for us about his astonishing recording career and recalls his personal highlights. Plus, where should listeners begin in exploring his legacy?

Also this issue: Geoffrey Norris visits the grand opening of Mariinsky II in St Petersburg and assesses its impact on Gergiev and his musicians; Jeremy Nicholas flies the flag for Charles-Valentin Alkan in the pianist-composer’s bicentenary year; and Fabrice Fitch surveys the best available recordings of the Eton Choirbook. Don’t miss interviews with Osmo Vänska on Sibelius’s Fourth Symphony and Gianandrea Noseda on Casella’s Third Symphony.

Plus, as always, the month's new classical music releases are reviewed by our expert critics - including our Recording of the Month, the second volume of Beethoven’s Complete String Quartets from the Belcea Quartet, released on Zig-Zag Territoires.
