Gramophone | July 2019
Forgotten American symphonies | Celebrating Handel's star sopranos | Thomas Dausgaard on Sibelius’s Kullervo | Vox Luminis at 15
For the July issue of Gramophone, on sale from June 19, we celebrate the mid-20th-century American symphonists who deserve to be better known with a cover story by guest writer and renowned conductor Gerard Schwarz.
Elsewhere, Lindsay Kemp interviews Vox Luminis’s Lionel Meunier about celebrating the early music group’s 15th anniversary with a recording of lesser-known Bachs, and Alexandra Coghlan explores the concept behind the recording project ‘Handel’s Queens’ with sopranos Lucy Crowe and Mary Bevan and London Early Opera’s Bridget Cunningham.
In addition, for this issue’s Collection, Richard Wigmore listens to multiple recordings of Brahms’s Four Serious Songs and chooses the ‘one to own’.
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?
