Tempo is the premier English-language journal devoted to 20th-century and contemporary concert music. Articles are often illustrated with music examples, and explore many aspects of the work of composers throughout the world. Written in an accessible style, approaches range from the narrative to the strictly analytical. Tempo frequently ventures outside the acknowledged canon to reflect the diversity of the modern music scene. Issues feature interviews with leading contemporary composers, a tabulated news section, and lively and wide-ranging reviews of recent recordings, books and first performances around the world. Selected issues also contain specially-commissioned music supplements.
