Piano's Golden Generation | Interviews with Kirill Karabits & Diana Damrau | Collection: Beethoven's Waldstein Sonata
In the January issue of Gramophone we bring you a fascinating cover feature on the new generation of young pianists who are giving the ‘greats’ from the Golden Age a run for their money.
Elsewhere, as Kirill Karabits celebrates a 10-year partnership with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the conductor tells Richard Bratby about a project that’s close to his heart: recording the music of fellow Ukrainian Boris Lyatoshinsky for Chandos.
Diana Damrau talks to David Patrick Stearns about the thrill of recording Hugo Wolf’s Italienisches Liederbuch alongside Jonas Kaufmann and pianist Helmut Deutsch.
In addition, Beethoven’s Waldstein Sonata in C, Op 53, is an extraordinary technical challenge for any pianist and, in this month’s Collection, Patrick Rucker explores the recorded catalogue of this monumental work.
Plus, 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?
