REVIEW OF INTROIT: TOWARDS THE LIGHT (BIOGRAPHY OF THOMAS WILSON by MARGARET WILSON AND DAVID GRIFFITH)

As I sat down to write this review, in the summer of 2012, two renowned critics in the Herald and the Scotsman respectively had just written glowing accounts of a performance by Csengele Quartet - featuring two students who are about to graduate from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland - who had featured Thomas Wilson's Fourth String Quartet in their concert programme:

Extract from Herald review by Michael Tumelty
"Actually, it's the thought that counts. It's all very well to be a wizard on your instrument, but if there's no brainwork behind it, the music will just sprawl. And brainwork was everywhere in the Csengele's performance ...... - with such acuity - in Thomas Wilson's Fourth String Quartet, that every rhythmic quiver and expressive sigh in the music seemed hyper-alert."
Extract from Scotsman review of same performance
"First up was the Fourth String Quartet by Glasgow composer Thomas Wilson (who died in 2001) and it's difficult to imagine a piece that packs more incident and drama into a single 20-minute movement. The Csengele players rose to it all well, in a vivid, confidently paced performance in which everyone got the chance to shine - violist Christine Anderson in particular made her mark in some assertive playing early on. All four clearly relished the piece's striking mix of unashamed modernism and heart-on-sleeve emotion, and although there were a few rough edges, they only added to the immediacy of the performance. Gripping stuff."

and I immediately thought "Thomas Wilson's time has come".

Reading this biography has given me a greater insight into Tom Wilson's world of music. Prior to reading this book my main interest was in his guitar music, but the doors that have opened on the rest of his life and work have been a journey of delight and discovery. This book is not written solely for musicians but will appeal to everyone with an interest in the life of one of Scotland's greatest composers.

Thomas Wilson was a Scottish composer, highly respected in the UK but never reaching the heights of popularity in the rest of the world. His music is modern but soulful, always meticulously constructed and well-crafted, with moments of real genius. This biography is written largely from the viewpoint of his wife, Margaret, so it's a genuine look at a very interesting man who both shaped and was shaped by music. This is was very worthwhile reading and an opportunity to learn about a composer the world should give another look.
