Welcome to the Fanfare Archive!

21 interviews, and over 525 reviews of classical CDs, SACDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, and downloads in this 640-page issue!

What is the Fanfare Archive of Classical Music CD reviews?
Click any link on this page, and you'll soon find a wealth of information and opinions about tens of thousands of CD, SACD, DVD, and Blu-Ray recordings of Classical, Jazz, and Film music that have been reviewed in Fanfare in recent years. The Archive is a work in progress, and it will eventually encompass every issue of Fanfare. An account of how this Archive came to be, and what our goals for it are, is here. We've tried to make it as subscriber-friendly as possible, for both new readers and old hands. You can't really get lost in the Archive, so we recommend just clicking on any button or link that seems interesting.
Fresh Results from the Scanning Project
We recently added back issues 4:1-4:4 and 29:3-30:1. We're working our way backwards through time and filling in gaps.
Special Thanks to the Archive's Helpers
The Fanfare Archive is a massive effort, and we couldn't do it without the many sharp-eyed readers who point out problems and offer solutions. We give special thanks to Stephen Ellis, our Fact Checker Extraordinaire with an encyclopedic knowledge of Classical Music.

All comments, suggestions and criticisms are most welcome! Scanning is an error-fraught process. We try to remove all egregious errors before publication, but some inevitably remain. Please let us know of them! If you use the Comments? link on the bottom of any page that needs fixing, the email to the Archive Team will automagically include the page you are talking about in the subject line.
