Hugh OttawayHugh Ottaway (1925 – 6 November 1979) was a prominent British writer on concert music.
Ottaway studied history at Exeter University. His most significant contributions to music criticism were as a commentator on that portion of twentieth-century music which retained an allegiance to tonality; thus Nielsen, Shostakovich and Sibelius featured largely in his output. He was especially associated with British tonal composers such as Edmund Rubbra and Robert Simpson. He died in Malvern, aged 54. Provided by Wikipedia
