Anthony Bilton built a successful career as an IT Risk and Audit Consultant working with some of the largest management consultancies and banks in the UK. However, throughout his career he maintained his keen interest in music (sparked by his teacher, the organist at Beverley Minster), both playing and researching. Two particular strands to his musical life – his research into Romantic piano concertos and his exploration of Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel’s music – led Anthony Bilton to Dora Bright’s piano concerto and thence to this biography, which will offer the first full-length study of Bright’s inspirational life and work.

Description

The lives of Dora Bright’s direct family, Father, Mother and Sister, are considered in some detail together with an overview of Dora’s own early life. Her initially happy childhood ends with her father’s death and the ensuing years lead her away from her native Sheffield to a life of music in London and beyond.
