Greg Dikmans playing at the Huntington Estate Music Festival (2009)

I am an Australian musician, educator and scholar , and the artistic director of the Elysium Ensemble.

I created this blog to write about topics relating to music appreciation. The sorts of things I talk to the audience about at my concerts: historical context, the composers, the music and what to listen for.

This knowledge should lead you to a greater enjoyment of the music.

Most of the posts will be summaries — key takeaways — of longer versions that I link to so you can read in more depth if you find the topics interesting.

If you have any questions, thoughts or suggestions, you can contact me directly at [email protected]
