Brian Newbould

Musicologist, composer, author, lecturer, Schubert specialist

Brian Newbould, internationally known as a Schubert scholar, is a specialist in the music of the Classical period, with wider historical interests beyond that.

Schubert Symphony No. 7 Sketch

His realisations of symphonies left unfinished by Schubert first brought him to international attention, since when he has written books on Schubert, pursued related musicological issues in articles, and completed other non-orchestral sketches.

He is also active as lecturer, composer, conductor, pianist and critic. He is equally at home presenting research papers at leading universities (including Cambridge, Princeton, Berkeley and Stanford) and talking about music to audiences of "lay" enthusiasts.
