Join date: Jan 9, 2019


I have followed classical music in the north of England since the days of Sir John Barbirolli, and was music and opera critic for the Yorkshire Evening Press in York before joining the Daily Telegraph in Manchester, then under the editorship of Michael Kennedy.

Since the 1970s I have contributed reviews and articles on music, opera and dance to the Manchester Evening News (becoming music and opera critic and a member of the original Manchester Theatre Awards panel) in 1994.

I write for Classical Music magazine, Musical Opinion, Opera Now, International Piano, The Strad, the Musical Times and others.
