In our February issue, we enjoy an exclusive interview with Philip Glass as the pioneering US composer turns 80 while leading fellow musicians assess his contribution to the course of classical music; plus, James Naughtie meets the brilliant Albanian soprano Ermonela Jaho, Jan Smaczny explores the luxurious world of Lully and we investigate the finest recordings of Mahler’s ‘Tragic’ Sixth Symphony. Also in our February issue, we invite you to vote in the 2017 BBC Music Magazine Awards, admire the swinging and singing of golfer-turned-soprano Joan Hammond, sit in on a piano workshop with Maria João Pires and ask broadcaster Nicky Campbell about his classical music loves; plus, on our free cover CD, we present Glass’s Symphony No. 10, performed by the Aurora Orchestra.
