I am an organ recitalist, based in England, specializing in early music. As well as my performing, writing has always been an important part of my musical activities. I have written many articles on organ topics and early music, as well as the little book ‘The Performance of Early Organ Music’. For 20 years, until its demise, I was the principal concert and organ CD reviewer for Early Music Review magazine. My reviewing is now on this review website. Although it generally covers early music concerts, CDs, books and editions, it also allows me to venture into broader musical fields.
Since this website first went public, it has received nearly 100,000 hits from around 150 countries. I think it is unethical for reviewers to gain financially from anything they review, so I will avoid the temptation to either include those irritating money-making adverts or pop-ups that bedevil so many websites, or to set up a pay-wall. Feel free to share my reviews on social media or to quote from them, as long as I am acknowledged. I welcome invitations to review – you can email me at ajbw (AT) hotmail.com. I am keen to encourage younger musicians as much as I can. You can find more information here.
