The Gramophone Classical Music Podcast

Nov 11, 2022

Chandos was named Gramophone’s Label of the Year at the 2022 Gramophone Classical Music Awards last month – a perfect excuse for a series of podcasts focusing on some of the label’s key artists. And the pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet would certainly count as one, with complete cycles of the Beethoven piano sonatas and concertos, the piano works of Debussy, the Prokofiev and Bartók piano concertos, a cycle of the Haydn piano sonatas as well as the Mozart piano concertos to his name.

Gramophone’s Editor Martin Cullingford caught up with Jean-Efflam Bavouzet recently to talk about his relationship with Chandos and the role recording has played in his career.
