He earned his PhD in musicology at Cambridge University, and has taught and conducted research at many distinguished institutions around the world including Cambridge, King’s College London, Yale, and Harvard.

He has written widely on music, from Monteverdi to Stravinsky, but is particularly known for his work on (i) Beethoven, (ii) the intersection between music, philosophy and theology, and (iii) the history of ‘absolute music’.
