Gramophone | October 2022
In the October 2022 issue of Gramophone we focus on Ralph Vaughan Williams in his 150th anniversary year, exploring his impact on the music of today through conversations with some of the leading composers who were influenced by his work.
Meanwhile, Gesualdo Six have emerged in recent years as one of the most exciting of young vocal ensembles, and we speak to their director Owain Park about the group, and about his own compositions and wider work too.
We also bring readers our Season Preview - an 18-page comprehensive guide exploring the year ahead for organisations and ensembles throughout the world.
