For much of the twentieth century, Donald Francis Tovey (1875-1940) has been Britain's most celebrated and influential writer on music. However, as a prolific and popular lecturer, broadcaster, conductor, and essayist, Tovey left many writings unpublished at the time of his death. The Classics of Music assembles here for the first time seventy of Tovey's significant writings not previously available as a collection. Initially edited by Michael Tilmouth, late Tovey Professor of Music at the University of Edinburgh, the volume has been completed by David Kimbell and Roger Savage, also of Edinburgh - the institution at which Tovey himself held the Reid Chair of Music from 1914.

About the Author:


Donald Francis Tovey was Reid Professor of Music at the University of Edinburgh from 1914 until his death in 1940

Review:


"In an age in which writings on music are generally discussed under the rubric 'research activity', it is both refreshing and heart-warming to have The Classics of Music on my desk: a work that has evidently been a labour of love at every step of its creation, from the writing of its constituent texts in the first part of the twentieth century, to their preservation by archivists at Edinburgh University after the author's death in 1940, to its preparation in book form by two generations of scholars."--Music and Letters
