As of September 2008, Gramophone Magazine´s entire back-catalogue of content will be made available in a massive online archive - that´s 85 years worth of news, reviews and features absolutely free.

The monthly publication dedicated to classical music has been running since 1923, originally founded by the Scottish author Compton Mackenzie. The free archive will contain over 100,000 articles and has been described by current editor James Inverne as “an indispensable guide for anyone who is remotely interested in classical music".

Gramophone plans to link every review to a download and mail order service to make the service commercially viable. Keep an eye on Gramophone Magazine´s official site for more details.
