December 2016


Our December issue is all about Bach. Inside, we reveal the genius of Johann Sebastian in 10 masterpieces, give you a whirlwind tour of the Bach family tree and, on your free cover CD, present an exclusive recording of The Art of Fugue performed by Mahan Esfahani and instrumentalists from the Academy of Ancient Music. Also in our December issue, renowned conductor Daniel Harding tells James Naughtie all about his new orchestra, we explore the ghostly rediscovery of Schumann’s Violin Concerto,  and we take a trip to a rural village in Siberia – the site of a new Mozart opera recording.
