Listen: Life with Classical Music September/October Issue Highlights

The September/October issue of Listen: Life with Classical Music features conductor Michael Tilson Thomas on the cover, celebrates the 80th birthday of American composer George Crumb, and includes interviews with musicians Leif Ove Andsnes, Joshua Bell, Angèle Dubeau, and José Serebrier. The magazine travels to Norway to report on an unusual collaboration at the Risor Chamber Music Festival, Chicago to spotlight the city’s eclectic music scene, and Toronto to cover a recording session of 17th-century music with the Canadian Brass. These are just some of the subjects in the fall issue of the new bimonthly print magazine published and distributed by the online classical music retailer ArkivMusic, The Source for Classical Music™.
