Latest issue:

In the June issue of Gramophone, on sale from May 20, we celebrate the eccentric genius of Erik Satie on the French composer’s 150th birthday. Best known for his solo-piano Gymnopédies and Gnossiennes, the ‘Velvet Gentleman’ inspired composers from Stravinsky to John Cage, writes Peter Quantrill.

Elsewhere in the issue, we reveal the results of the 2016 Hall of Fame. Ten new musicians, 10 towering achievements in the world of classical recordings. Plus, David Vickers travels to Italy to meet the conductor behind The Stradella Project, which aims to raise the profile of this pioneering Baroque composer.

Add to all that the latest reviews, including Recording of the Month, by our expert panel of critics and you'll find a June issue that's a fascinating read from start to finish.



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”.
