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 current role of woman and the challenges they face is considered. Despite the ensuing 150 years since Dora Bright’s birth, the rise of feminism and the focus on equality and diversity, the author concludes that in many ways the world of music remains biased against women.
