March 2017

In our February issue, we speak to British pianist Imogen Cooper about why she is finally turning to the music of the late-Romantic era: Wagner and Liszt. We remember the short but extraordinary career of pianist Dinu Lipatti, Kiri Te Kanawa tells us about the stories behind famous pictures from her career, and James Naughtie speaks to countertenor Iestyn Davies. Also in this issue, we find out how composer Amy Beach struggled against repression from her own family to have an extraordinary career, and take a walk through Haydn’s London, visiting places the composer once worked or lived. Plus, on your free cover CD, Haydn’s Military and Mourning Symphonies performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, and conducted by Donald Runnicles and Nicholas McGegan.
