No. 310, January/February 2023
Our cover story this issue is an interview with cellist Johannes Moser, who challenges listeners to rethink the work of Bohuslav Martinů. By recording the composer’s three cello sonatas, Moser hopes to emphasize the wide range of expression and emotion in the works, perhaps convincing critics that Martinů’s music doesn’t all sound “a little bit the same.” Elsewhere in this issue, you’ll also find a special focus on adult amateur players.
