May 2018


You voted in your thousands, and now it’s time to reveal the winners of this year’s BBC Music Magazine Awards. In our May issue we speak to all the winning artists and meet conductor Bernard Haitink, who has scooped the prestigious Recording of the Year prize. Also this month, Clemency Burton-Hill sits down with four former winners of BBC Young Musician, the legendary competition that this year celebrates its 40th anniversary. Plus, we visit the sites of London’s once-famous concert halls that have now disappeared, and James Naughtie talks to pianist Piers Lane. On your cover CD this month, David Finckel and Wu Han perform works for cello and piano by Bach, Mendelssohn, Debussy and Britten.
