Latest issue: In the March issue of Gramophone, we ask why the music of Robert Schumann is at last attracting the recognition it deserves. Once maligned for his inconsistency and supposedly awkward orchestration, will Schumann’s reputation shift thanks to a new generation of musicians better able to unlock the truths of his fascinating works? With the help of soloists Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov and conductors Simon Rattle, Heinz Holliger and Robin Ticciati, we look at the place of Schumann’s music in 21st-century life.

Also in this issue, a comprehensive history of the post-war recording technology that spawned Hi-Fi as we know it, and an appraisal of Australian Brett Dean, our featured ‘contemporary composer.’ All that, plus Thomas Sondergård talks Sibelius, Jeremy Nicholas and Andrew Lamb argue the toss over the D’Oyly Carte Mikado, David Patrick Stearns chooses the best recording of Nielsen’s Symphony No 3 and we review the month’s notable CD and DVD releases.



Gramophone has been the world’s leading authority on classical music since 1923. With 13 issues a year every edition will enrich your classical music knowledge with in-depth interviews and features about composers past and present, plus established and new artists from across the globe. Each issue includes over 100 reviews of the latest CDs, downloads, DVDs and books all written by our globally acclaimed panel of expert critics. Gramophone is the magazine for the classical collector, as well for the enthusiast starting a voyage of discovery.



The trial issue features an in-depth retrospective on Schubert’s Winterreise, with input from some of the leading performers of the song cycle, including Jonas Kauffman, Ian Bostridge, Gerald Finley and Brigitte Fassbaender.



It also includes an interview with the San Francisco Symphony’s conductor, Michael Tilson Thomas; the New York Philharmonic’s Music Director, Alan Gilbert, discusses Nielsen’s Fifth Symphony; plus we look back at the remarkable career of American soprano Leontyne Price.



Also featured in the trial issue: we analyse the breakthrough works of John Adams, we reconsider Sir Thomas Beecham’s classic recording of Puccini’s La bohème, and we recommend the very best recordings of Rachmaninov’s Symphony No 2.


Please note: This is the North American edition of Gramophone. It includes all the pages of the UK edition and also a specialised 16 page supplement each issue, “Sounds of America”. This details the most exciting musical developments across North America as well as reviewing the most interesting specialist American releases.
