BBC Music in the Glock Era and After

A Memoir

by Leo Black and Christopher Wintle

Edited by Christopher Wintle

  • Description
Leo Black's 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.

From 1959 to 1972 William Glock, as Controller, Music, stamped his personality memorably on BBC Radio, gathering around him a talented staff that included emigrés 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 BoydellPress.
