Roger Fiske (1910 - 1987)

Roger Fiske was an English musicologist, broadcaster, author and composer. After taking a BA in English at Wadham College, Oxford in 1932, he studied composition with Herbert Howells at the Royal College of Music in London. Awarded an Oxford Doctorate in Music in 1937, he subsequently joined the staff of the BBC where he produced educational programmes for the armed forces (1948–53) and talks on music (1953–59). He left the BBC in 1959 and was subsequently editor-in-chief of Eulenberg scores (1968–75). Fiske wrote several books on music including Beethoven’s Last Quartets (1940), Chamber Music (1969), the important English Theatre Music in the Eighteenth Century (1973), and Scotland in Music (1983), as well as many articles and reviews for magazines and journals. Prominent among his original music manuscripts held at the Bodleian Library are the present Clarinet Sonata and a Clarinet Sonatina dating from 1941 and 1951 respectively.
