The August issue of BBC Music Magazine is now available on the iPad. Download our app to read all the magazine’s great features, interviews and reviews – plus, you can hear clips from almost 200 recordings reviewed and recommended in the issue. And if you like what you hear, you can also buy the recordings within the app.
Everywhere you see a play button or underlined text, simply tap to hear a music clip. And now you can also listen to the magazine cover CD as part of the app – this month we celebrate 60 years of the BBC Concert Orchestra. Listen to the orchestra perform Malcolm Arnold’s Symphony No. 1, Eric Coates’s The Three Elizabeths Suite as well as Johann Strauss II’s Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka – and all the time continue reading the world’s best-selling classical music magazine.
This month we talk exclusively to violinist Nicola Benedetti, who is a featured artist at the BBC Proms; Simon Heighes guides us through the beginnings of sound reproduction with Edison's domestic phonograph, and we take a look at the history of music at the Olympics.
