About the Author

Michael Kennedy has been the music critic for the Sunday Telegraph since 1989. He has written numerous musical biographies, particularly of British composers and conductors, including A Portrait of Elgar (1986). His most recent book is a highly acclaimed study of Richard Strauss (Cambridge, 1999).


'The author ... writes with a great sympathy for his subject, as well as a love for his music ... [his] wide-ranging knowledge gives this thoroughly enjoyable biography a cultural depth which enriches one's understanding of the life and work of this complicated musical genius and English gentleman.' Contemporary Review 'Michael Kennedy's elegantly written volume is full of interesting and sagacious comments on Elgar's compositions ...'. The Sunday Telegraph
