Darbar Festival brings sitar and sarod stars to the Barbican | Clive Myrie on why he needs Beethoven on the battlefield | Pairing films with a live orchestra

In Classical Music’s Summer issue we talk to the team bringing Indian classical music to London’s Barbican with the annual Darbar Festival, broadcasting giant Clive Myrie talks about his lifelong relationship with classical music, and Adrian Horsewood looks to the future with the instrument makers who are breaking the mould.

With data becoming an unavoidable part of every funding application, Glyn Môn Hughes finds out how organisations can collect it without breaking the bank. Our Industry Insight pages demystify the role of the artist manager, while our society focus shines a light on the work of the Society of Women Organists. The live-to-projection format is a fast-growing segment of the orchestral sector, and editor Florence Lockheart talks to the artists involved to find out just what it takes to present a film in concert.

Elsewhere in the issue we find out how the Royal Philharmonic Society is helping ensure a future for emerging talent and learn about the venues bringing classical music to unexpected places, from cliffsides, to Roman amphitheatres. Our final thoughts come from outgoing Britten Pears Arts chief executive Roger Wright, as he presents his final edition of Aldeburgh festival. Plus, our usual news, opinions and focuses on funding, venues, touring and more.
