Format: Books | Biography
Geoffrey Bush (1920-1998) was a British scholar, organist and composer, who having met and befriended John Ireland in his youth became an ardent champion of English music. Published to mark his 70th birthday in 1990, An Unsentimental Education was his second volume of essays, autobiography, and other musical recollections - following the successful formula used in Left, Right, and Centre. Inside, he discusses many subjects close to his heart, including contemporaries such as Arne, Bennett, Sullivan, Britten, and Montgomery. His distinctive narrative is unmistakable, and its readability is only enhanced by the many amusing asides.
