BBC Music Magazine: Issue 356 – Christmas 2020



Immediate Media

In Christmas 2020 issue, we meet the iconic film composer John Williams to reflect on his long and prosperous career in Hollywood, some of his greatest scores and concert music and his thrilling forays into conducting.

As is tradition, BBC Music Magazine has commissioned a special Christmas carol for our readers. This year’s offering is from composer Freya Waley-Cohen, who introduces us to ‘A candle sings of simple things’, her setting of a new poem by Charlie Cotton. Also, we have created a special musical Advent Calendar, packed with musical trivia, recommendations of festive recordings and much more.
