Musical Architects

Creating Tomorrow’s Royal Academy of Music

A history of Britain's Royal Academy Academy of Music with three hundred color images. 

Britain’s Royal Academy of Music is the oldest and one of the most prestigious conservatories in the world, training generations of eminent musicians for all parts of the profession. Its alumni—including Henry Wood, John Barbirolli, Myra Hess, Felicity Lott, Simon Rattle, Harrison Birtwistle, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Jacob Collier, and many more—populate all the great orchestras and opera houses of the world, including the Berlin Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera in New York. They are players, singers, composers, conductors, curators, animators, and teachers.

Approaching its bicentenary, the Royal Academy continues to foster future generations of musicians and music lovers. Featuring beautiful photography of the world’s most famous conservatoire, Musical Architects reveals how virtuoso architecture and technology have brilliantly fused the Academy’s famous Edwardian building with the modern institution’s creative values and aspirations as it moves towards its third century.
