Tim Howell


Tim Howell specializes in the analysis of new music, especially from Finland. An internationally recognized authority on the music of Sibelius, his research has now broadened to encompass contemporary Finnish music as reflected in two major publications: After Sibelius: Studies in Finnish Music (Ashgate, 2006) which combines elements of composer biography and detailed analysis within the broader context of cultural and national identity; and Kaija Saariaho: Visions, Narratives, Dialogues (Ashgate, September 2011) for which he was the main editor, and contributed a chapter on Saariaho’s concertos. He has recently devised, compiled and edited a volume of Contemporary Music Review, ‘Musical Narratives: Studies in Time & Motion’, (December, 2014) contributing an article on Magnus Lindberg’s recent orchestral music.
