Our August/September issue is now available – featuring percussionist and teacher Simone Rebello on her early passion for her instrument and her belief in passing on the baton to students, an introduction to Leah Kardos‘ experiments in sound and a look at what a non-analogue future might hold for John Cage‘s radio works.
In this percussion special edition, we meet six artists pushing the perimeters of classical percussion, and learn about playing as a pair with dynamic duo Maraca2.
Reviewers report from ‘exploded orchestra’ concert Orchitecture and The Opera Group’s topical Babur in London; elsewhere, we hear about the challenges facing the modern ensemble and consider what it takes to be an independent promoter.
Also inside: new concert seasons listings, CD, book and DVD reviews, and loads more.
