In our July issue, we celebrate the summer of spectacular music at the BBC Proms. Our full 2017 Proms listings are accompanied by special features on this year’s themes, including: 100 years of Finnish independence, a history of the Proms on TV and the centenary of legendary jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald. Also inside our Proms special, James Naughtie interviews BBC Young Musician finalist Jess Gillam – a champion of the saxophone in the classical sphere, we discover the music that changed the life of wine writer Oz Clarke, and we chat to violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter about her past recordings. On your free cover CD is a classic BBC Proms performance of Strauss’s An Alpine Symphony performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Semyon Bychkov.
