 "WAGNER: The Critic's Perspective" By Ken Walton

Edinburgh Society of Musicians, 7.30pm

Wagner's music presented contemporary audiences and critics with a whole new listening experience. Ken Walton, classical music critic and columnist of The Scotsman, examines the nature of 19th century critical reaction to Wagner's music, setting such innovatory hallmarks as the so-called "Tristan Chord" in historical perspective

Ken Walton studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and Glasgow University. He has worked as a music critic, journalist and broadcaster in Scotland for over 30 years, the past 15 of these as principal music critic of The Scotsman. He is a former member of the BBC's Scottish Music Advisory Committee. Ken has also worked extensively in music education, having taught at Glasgow University and the RSAMD (now RCS), and is currently director of music performance at Hutchesons' Grammar School.
