A Life with Music; Conrad Wilson (1932 -2017); music critic, journalist, author

For anyone growing up in Scotland from the 1950s and sensitive to that nation’s burgeoning art music achievements, the name of Conrad Wilson and his work as music critic, journalist and author was inescapable.

This unique record gives memorable insights into the ethos and development of Scottish Opera, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Edinburgh International Festival and the principal protagonists associated with these organisations.

Philip Sawyer’s “Conversations” now reveal the back story to Wilson’s life in music and the influence of that life in Scotland’s musical emancipation.
