As befitted a renowned scholar and educationist, Tovey’s own music was much
influenced by the classics, especially Brahms, and was considered extremely
‘old-fashioned’ within his lifetime. Now that the fashions of the early 20th
century no longer seem quite so important, it is possible to appreciate his
gifts more realistically.

As well as being a virtuoso pianist, editor, scholar, conductor and all-round
educator, Tovey was a composer of considerable mastery. He began composing at
the age of eight, while a piano pupil of Sophie Weisse. He studied Classics in
Oxford, became a protege of Joseph Joachim and had works performed in Berlin
and Vienna. In 1914 became Professor of Music at the Reid School of Music,
Edinburgh University. He founded the Reid Orchestra in 1917 and for its
concerts wrote the famous series of programme notes eventually published
in six volumes as ‘Essays in Musical Analysis’.
