To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Gramophone Awards this year, Gramophone have produced a very special free digital magazine: 'Recordings of the Year 1977-2017'. The magazine features full reviews of each of the albums to have won Gramophone's top Award, the coveted Recording of the Year, since 1977. There is Wagner - if not enough for our liking of course

Says Gramophone: "We’re often asked which recordings are ‘essential’, those which should be part of any classical record collection. With the extraordinary wealth of great recordings produced over the last century, it’s almost an impossible question to answer, but the recordings in this digital magazine would form a collection that would provide several years of compelling listening. From Karajan, Rattle and Abbado in astonishing accounts of Mahler’s symphonies, to the wondrous pianism of Igor Levit, Paul Lewis, Nelson Freire and Krystian Zimerman, and exquisite chamber music from the Beaux Arts Trio and the Emerson, Pavel Haas and Ébène string quartets, Gramophone’s reviewers give deep insights and colourful descriptions of each of the albums to guide you to your next favourite recording."
