Adrian Horsewood has been named the new editor of Rhinegold Publishing title Early Music Today following current editor Claudine Nightingale’s departure from the role at the end of 2013.
Horsewood studied mathematics and philosophy at Cambridge University, then attended the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He is a baritone, composer, ensemble performer as well as researcher and journalist.
Ciaran Morton, managing director of Rhinegold Publishing, said of Horsewood’s appointment: ‘I am sure that his personal reputation within early music, combined with his contacts developed over the past decade, will ensure the continued successful growth of this title.
‘The magazine has enjoyed a very successful reimagining under the guiding hand of Claudine Nightingale and I am delighted that that we have found a similarly passionate talent to lead the title in its next phase of existence.’
He said of his new role: ‘I’m absolutely delighted to be taking on the editorship of Early Music Today. I’ve been reading the magazine for nearly 15 of its 20 years, starting from when I was at school and continuing throughout my own early music studies.
‘Now I’m looking forward to meeting many of our readers during the course of my travels, whether out and about as performer or as editor of EMT!’
Horsewood will take up the role of editor in January 2014.
