Great clips!

I bought the May issue to see what the fuss was about. It was great to be able to hear sound clips from Thomas Ades' violin concerto while reading the article about it, and the clips form the top CD reviews too. The full-page photo gallery for the viola da gamba is interesting as well. And nice that it's cheaper than the usual version! Reviewed lunedì 2 giugno 2014
