About the Author

James Jolly was the editor of Gramophone, the world’s most respected classical record magazine, from 1989 to 2005. He stepped down from the role on the publication of the magazine’s 1000th issue taking on the title of Editor-in-Chief. He contributes a monthly column on downloading and new technologies to the magazine and is also editor of the Classical Good CD, DVD and Download Guide. He has also made many podcasts, not only for Gramophone, but with major artists such as Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Maxim Vengerov and Martin Alsop as well as younger performers like Alison Balsom, Natalie Clein and Simon Trpceski.

For the last four years he has co-presented a monthly new releases program for XM Classics, part of the US-based satellite radio network, XM Radio based in Washington DC, and has also hosted Virgin Atlantic’s classical music program. For the past two years he has co-hosted the Midem Classical Awards in Cannes. His written contributions outside Gramophone include articles for The Grove Dictionary of Opera.
