Current Issue

August 2017

In our August issue, we enjoy meeting the BBC Young Musician-winning cellist Sheku Kanneh Mason and hearing how he balances schoolwork with music. And fellow cellist Natalie Clein discusses her passion for new music with James Naughtie, ahead of a Proms premiere by Brian Elias. As the Edinburgh Festival reaches 70, we look back at its finest moments and the many legends who have appeared. Also in our August issue, we hear about the holiday antics of the great composers, as revealed in their diaries and letters. While we go on the trail of Grieg’s folk influences and seek out the finest recordings of Bach’s ‘48’, our free cover disc showcases BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists in works by Schumann and Weber.
