About the Author

Tim Ashley is a freelance writer and journalist. His work appears regularly in the Guardian Review and Opera. He lectures widely on nineteenth- and twentieth-century German music and literature, and is the author of several opera librettos.


'Tim Ashley's beautifully written, analytical but accessible introduction to Strauss in Phaidon's excellent series.' (The Sunday Times) 'A clear-eared, clear-minded tribute to greatness, fluently written.' (Guardian)

'As a series, Phaidon's 20th Century Composers has brought remarkable variety and a welter of information, both necessary and delightfully trivial. Intended both for the general reader and for the more enthusiatically musical...' (The Scotsman)
