Tony Haywood ?Reviewer Profile

Tony cheerfully describes himself as a 憆ecord nut?still unable to stop the urge to visit CD shops or surf the web for bargains or gap fillers in his collection. The time to actually sit and listen is becoming increasingly rare, though reviewing for Musicweb means he has to make such time!

An early love of music (mainly classical) led to piano lessons and eventually a B.Mus (Hons.) at Huddersfield Polytechnic (now University), where among his tutors were Arthur Butterworth (orchestration), John Casken (composition) and, for one valuable year before his retirement, the much-missed Harold Truscott. Harold抯 enthusiasm for a huge range of sorely neglected composers rubbed off (as did his love of old films) and it is a constant source of regret that he is not around today to see many of these composers enjoying the attention they deserve, to say nothing of the interest being shown in Harold抯 own distinctively crafted scores. Tony now teaches part-time at Huddersfield, specialising in early 20th Century, as well as taking an active organisational interest in the now-famous Contemporary Music Festival, and he hopes to register for a Ph.D, possibly on the music of a major living composer.

His other 慸ay job?is in the musical instrument field, as he runs a successful piano restoration and tuning business. This brings him into contact with many fine pianists visiting the area, and recent luminaries he has worked for include Angela Hewitt, Boris Berezovsky and Paul Lewis. Balancing the two jobs gets precarious at times (which is where the lack of quality listening time comes in). But whether it is servicing a Steinway grand or talking about Bartok to the first years, there is usually never a dull moment.
