Oliver Soden

Oliver Soden was born in Bath, and educated first at Lancing College in West Sussex, and then at Clare College, Cambridge, where he took a double first in English.

He worked as literary assistant to RSC founder-director John Barton, editing a volume of Barton's ten-play cycle Tantalus, before becoming a researcher on BBC Radio 3's long-running programme Private Passions. He is an authority on the life and work of twentieth-century British composer Michael Tippett, on whom he has lectured and broadcast widely, publishing articles in, among others, the Guardian, Gramophone, and world-leading academic journals. Soden is writing the first full-length biography of Tippett, to be published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 2019.
