The Gramophone magazine
The Gramophone is a magazine published monthly in London devoted to classical music, particularly to reviews of recordings.
It was founded in 1923 by the Scottish author Compton Mackenzie. It was acquired by Haymarket in 1999.In 2013 the Mark Allen Group became the publisher.
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 Gramophone claims to be: “The world’s authority on classical music since 1923.” This used to appear on the front cover of every issue; recent editions have changed the wording to “The world’s best classical music reviews.”
Its circulation, including digital subscribers, was 24,380 in 2014.
Apart from the annual Gramophone Awards, each month features a dozen recordings as Gramophone Editor’s Choice (now Gramophone Choice). Then, in the annual Christmas edition, there is a review of the year’s recordings where each critic selects four or five recordings – these selections make up the Gramophone Critics’ Choice.
In April 2012, Gramophone launched its Hall of Fame, an annual listing of the men and women (artists, producers, engineers, A&R directors and label founders) who have contributed to the classical record industry.
The first 50 were revealed in the May 2012 issue and on Gramophone’s website, and each year will see another intake of honorees into the Hall of Fame.
