About the Author:


The authors, Humphrey Burton and Maureen Murray, worked with Walton on Ischia and have retained their Waltonian links since his death in 1983: she is curator of the Walton Archive and he is a member of the Walton Trust. With their shared background in television documentary they have adopted a filmic approach to this new pictorial biography.

Review:

`Superbly compiled new life in photographs'
Richard Osborne, The Oldie

`A generous assortment of pictures, press-cuttings and memorabilia which put Walton in context'
Fiona Maddox, The Spectator

`Rich new clues to help close the gap in our general understanding of Walton and his music'
Kenneth Walton, The Scotsman

`The presentation is impeccable: as always, the OUP has done Walton proud. So have Humphrey Burton and Maureen Murray... Their joint skill has produced a library book essential to any lover of Walton's music... Its illustrative appeal does not lessen its value as a book of reference'
Felix Aprahamian, Choir and Organ

`Superbly compiled new life in photographs.'
Richard Osborne, The Oldie
