Dr John Allison

John realised he enjoyed writing about music as much as performing it while studying for his PhD at the University of Cape Town. Now, he is the editor of Opera magazine and music critic for the Daily Telegraph. In the course of his career he’s interviewed composer Elliott Carter, tenor Luciano Pavarotti and pop star Sting, as well as publishing two books, The Pocket Companion to Opera and Edward Elgar: Sacred Music.
