This year we have posted 744 articles, beginning with my preview of the Britten Sinfonia's Spring season and ending with my preview of the English Symphony Orchestra's New Year's Eve concert, and along the way we have managed to produced 145 record reviews.

Our top performing articles this year have been my review of Beethoven's Fidelio at Covent Garden with Lise Davidsen and Jonas Kauffmann, my article about the new 2020/21 cohort of young artists at the National Opera Studio, my review of English Touring Opera's staging of Bach's St John Passion, my article about Birmingham Opera Company's plans to stage Wagner's Das Rheingold in a disused metalworks, my article on London Mozart Player's returning to performing in July, and my article on the Rodolfus Foundation's virtual evensong. Our top performing record review was Pierre Hantaï's disc of Handel's keyboard suites (which also made it onto our top 20 list of discs for 2020).

If you have missed out on anything over the year then our archive lists Opera and Concert Reviews, Record Reviews and Interviews are now up to date and well worth a browse.
