Kort presentation

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

Research interests include Philosophy of Music and Aesthetics, Music Criticism, Contemporary Music, Opera, Music and Ideas in Eighteenth-Century France. I am currently researching a book on the history and meaning of music criticism and its relation to the idea of music as art.

I work as a music and opera critic, primarily for the Times Literary Supplement and the Guardian (UK).

I was educated at the University of Oxford (MA, 1994) and at King's College, London (MMus 1999, PhD 2006). My doctoral thesis investigated the relation between Jean-Jacques Rousseau's musical theories and his moral philosophy, and was entitled "The Morality of Musical Imitation in Jean-Jacques Rousseau" (pdf available here).

I became a journalist in 2006, specialising in music and culture, and have worked as a music critic for the Guardian since 2008 and as the main opera critic of the Times Literary Supplement since 2009. From 2009 to 2014 I also taught at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

I am married to the philosopher Elisabeth Schellekens with whom I have two children, Cecilia and Gabriel.
