Not only does Matthew know the contents of every book on the reading list but can directly quote it from memory, sometimes including the page number.
He takes part, leads and conducts a lot of ensembles. Particularly the Gamelan, Baroque Strings, Loud Winds, Georgian Band and anything involving medieval or period music.
Cares a lot about doing a good job.
Very well meaning. Matthew has a fantastic sense of humour as well as an incredible use of the English language. Lives in Oxford. Has had a life in music.
