The Strad January 2014 issue is on sale now

Tuesday, 24 December 2013

The January issue of The Strad is now on sale. In our 'Fresh Thinking' edition Californian cello innovator and sound sculptor Zoë Keating reveals how technology and the internet have helped her home-grown music to flourish outside the mainstream. 

Our article on pop-up exhibitions investigates why a growing number of luthiers are abandoning big trade fairs and setting up their own exhibitions; and our alternative ensembles feature reveals how groups such as Berklee World Strings in Boston and Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble are giving new opportunities to young string players away from the conventional Western classical tradition route. 

Also in the issue, science in lutherie: how modern scientific methods are being used to reveal the secrets of Cremona’s old masters – we investigate some of the most popular techniques for examining instruments and assess how effective and reliable these methods are.

Elsewhere, Maxim Rysanov’s guide to playing Bach’s Sixth Cello Suite (Practice Diary); a close-up view of violin by Giuseppe Rocca (In Focus); Gary Hoffman’s tips on interpreting Brahms’s Cello Sonata in F major (Masterclass); and a tribute to Masuko Ushioda, one of the New England Conservatory’s longest-standing string tutors.

FREE INSIDE: Summerplus supplement – your 60-page guide to string courses worldwide
