Confessions of a Music Critic

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


Confessions of a Music Critic grew out of one of the fascinating talks the author regularly gives on the music club circuit and draws on his experiences of over 50 years of writing for the Birmingham Post as well as periodicals. Christopher describes his Anglo-Italian upbringing, moving on to take in the many countries he has visited whilst writing features and reviews, including tours by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra with Sir Simon Rattle. He also covers school teaching in the Birmingham area, lecturing at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, his conducting experiences and even clients at his ill-starred music shop in Moseley. We are taken through the CBSO years from the Town Hall Birmingham to Symphony Hall and from Louis Fremaux to Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla. There are some fascinating tales of world leading soloists and conductors and many stories that are both funny and poignant.
