In the February issue of Gramophone, on sale from January 29, we pay tribute to the late Pierre Boulez – musical Modernist and paradoxical pioneer. In Philip Clark's searching feature, we discover how the French composer and conductor almost singlehandedly changed the way we listen to music. Elsewhere in the issue, Richard Wigmore welcomes the premiere period-instrument recordings of two Haydn symphonies by Accademia Bizantia and Ottavio Dantone, while Charlotte Gardner talks to Tasmin Little about her decision to tackle Beethoven's complete violin sonatas for Chandos. Add to all that the latest reviews by our expert panel of critics, including Recording of the Month, and you'll find a February issue that's a stimulating read from start to finish.

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.
