Conrad Wilson

Book review: Conrad Wilson - A Life With Music, by Philip Sawyer

Conrad Wilson, staff music critic of The Scotsman from 1964 to 1991, died last November at the age of 85. One of his greatest attributes was an extraordinarily accurate memory for facts; he was able to retrieve the most obscure information at the drop of a hat, then articulate it with the same passionate lyricism he might expect from a virtuoso opera singer he was reviewing. His writing was stylish, honest and informative.
