Gramophone | August 2020
For the August issue of Gramophone, on sale from July 17, we are pleased to introduce a special focus on online concerts and opera. Where has the growth of online music reached, and where will it lead us next? Our case study is Berlin, a city which has become a pioneer in terms of connecting audiences online. We also look at the process of transferring a musical experience from venue to screen and the crucial role of the video director. Plus, learn how to boost your sound to emulate the live experience from your living room with our indispensable audio guide.
Elsewhere, in this month’s Collection, Edward Seckerson weighs up the recorded competition in the work he considers Bernstein’s finest – the Mass.
Meanwhile, in Classics Reconsidered, David Vickers and Lindsay Kemp reappraise the Academy of Ancient Music’s revelatory period-instrument recording of Mozart’s Salzburg Symphonies on the L’Oiseau-Lyre label.
Plus, as always, don’t miss our expert critics’ opinions of the newest classical releases – which will be named Editor’s Choice, and which overall recording will be crowned Recording of the Month?
