No classical music lover will want to miss out on the bumper November issue of Limelight magazine, which hits newsstands today and is available now from our online store.

The special collectors’ edition marks 100 issues of Limelight magazine bringing quality classical music and arts coverage to readers in Australia and abroad.

To celebrate, we present the 100 greatest CDs ever reviewed in the magazine, and the chance for one lucky reader to win every single disc: a serious classical music bounty exclusive to the November issue. Buy your copy for more details.

We pay tribute to the unforgettable concerts, new recordings and dynamic music personalities that graced these pages throughout the year by giving readers the chance to participate in the Limelight Awards. The voting form is enclosed in the November issue, or you can cast your votes online.

This month, Limelight also looks ahead to the hot-ticket concerts of 2012 in our annual Season Preview: your guide to next year’s must-see performances.

Many of Australia’s classical music luminaries have contacted us to extend their good wishes and add their voices to the celebrations. “My sincerest congratulations to Limelight on reaching its 100th issue,” said Vladimir Ashkenazy, principal conductor and artistic advisor of the Sydney Symphony. “Australia is fortunate to have a classical music magazine of such calibre.”
