Gramophone Magazine December 2008
English | 162 Pages | 85MB | PDF
Gramophone is a magazine published monthly in London by Haymarket devoted to classical music and particularly recordings of classical music. It was founded in 1923 by the Scottish author Compton Mackenzie. The magazine presents the Gramophone Awards each year to the classical recordings which it considers the finest in a variety of categories.
In the title bar of its website, as of January 2007, Gramophone claims to be: "The world's best classical music magazine." This boast used to appear on the front cover of every issue, although recent editions have changed the wording to "The world's unrivalled authority on classical music since 1923." Its international readership appears to have been challenged by BBC Music Magazine.
