Documenting the life and times of a remarkable figure whose life touched a wide circle in England and Ireland, it was notable for having many of Baxs friends and contemporaries as sources, most of whom have since died. It also informed the remarkable revival of Baxs music and reputation which has taken place over the last twenty years. Now completely revised in the light of much new material including the huge archive of the pianist Harriet Cohen, Baxs mistress, which has only just become available for research, it is a notable portrait of a unique musical milieu.

Baxs extensive musical output is now comprehensively recorded and widely known and here all the music is discussed from first hand acquaintance with all the revivals and recordings. This is the essential handbook to Bax and his period.

Lewis Foreman is a freelance author and advisor to record companies.
