In the July issue of Gramophone Andrew Mellor talks to Colin Currie, Evelyn Glennie and Martin Grubinger about how the technical and music developments in percussion have been igniting composers’ curiosities and attracting new audiences.

Elsewhere, Richard Lawrence celebrates the pioneering label Opera Rara, whose fearless approach to little-known operas has resulted in many studio recordings, and Editor Martin Cullingford talks to the Marian Consort’s Director Rory McCleery about recording Allegri, James MacMillan and a new work by Gabriel Jackson.
