Current Issue

December 2017

Our December cover star is the incredible violinist Isabelle Faust, who tells us all about her fresh approach to Mendelssohn. Pianist Krystian Zimerman gives a rare interview to talk about his friendship with Leonard Bernstein, while mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli meets James Naughtie for The BBC Music Magazine Interview. Works by Barber, Smyth, Beach and Gershwin feature on your free cover CD, performed by violinist Elena Urioste, a BBC New Generation Artist. Also in the December issue, we explore the life and music of JC Bach, reveal the best recordings of Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony, and talk a look at 15 calamitous cancellations by musicians.
