Gramophone Magazine has asked readers to contribute ideas for a collection of the worst classical record covers ever. There is plenty of choice, and the ideas are streaming in…
If anyone has any ideas, let them know!
Graham Spicer is a writer, director and photographer in Milan, blogging (under the name ‘Gramilano’) about dance, opera, music and photography for people “who are a bit like me and like some of the things I like”. He was a regular columnist for Opera Now magazine and wrote for the BBC until transferring to Italy.
His scribblings have appeared in various publications from Woman’s Weekly to Gay Times, and he wrote the ‘Danza in Italia’ column for Dancing Times magazine.
Hahaha, these are brilliantly terrible! I feel much less guilty for my dismay at the Nilsson Salome cover now. Poor Bryn Terfel has an amazing “Why am I wearing this wig?” expression. Also, I think Jessye Norman might be about to perform an unspeakable ritual with those candles. Yikes.
You’re so right! It will certainly be a long list of candidates.
