Gramophone magazine offers what are considered by most classical music fans to be the gold standard in classical reviews. Alongside in-depth articles and editorials, each issue includes over 50 pages of informative, authoritative reviews of classical music recordings written by its panel of over 40 professional reviewers. The best new releases in each issue are selected as Gramophone Choice. The selections below are Gramophone Choices in the March 2012 issue.

Featured Releases:

LISZT, F.: Annees de pelerinage (Chamayou)

BACH, J.S.: Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin, BWV 1001-1006 (A. Beyer)

“These are fresh, spirited, finely judged performances. An enormously enjoyable set.”
