Description

From 1959 to 1972 William Glock, as Controller, Music, stamped his personality memorably on BBC Radio, gathering around him a talented staff that included emigres and experts in Continental music new and old. Among the young recruits was Leo Black, an intelligent musician with an affinity for singers and Austro-German music. In his 28 years at the BBC - years that extended well beyond 1972 - Black learnt the system, worked with leading BBC figures and musicians, produced countless programmes and discovered his own identity. This memoir not only recalls 'the Glock Era and After' in a series of informative, poignant, witty and judicious vignettes, but is also a key text for understanding one of the great ages of British music. Includes illustrations by Milein Cosman. Leo Black is the author of Franz Schubert: Music and Belief and Edmund Rubbra: Symphonist, both published by the Boydell Press.
