May 2020

In our May issue, Richard Morrison meets the leading violinist Maxim Vengerov as he marks 40 years of life on the concert stage. Another major anniversary we are celebrating this year is the centenary of sitarist and composer Ravi Shankar, whose biographer Oliver Craske details his outstanding contribution to the development of 20th-century western music. 

Also this month, Kate Molleson meets the groundbreaking Canadian soprano and conductor Barbara Hannigan and we take a walk around New York’s best musical haunts. 

We name the very best recordings of Kodály’s Háry János orchestral suite, and the iconic Argentinian Astor Piazzolla is our Composer of the Month.   

Bruckner’s stunning Symphony No. 8 is on your cover CD this month, in a performance by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under Donald Runnicles.
