Dan Morgan

Dan Morgan was born in Pretoria, South Africa, but spent the first decade of his life in what was then the Bechuanaland Protectorate (now Botswana). This semi-desert was something of a musical wilderness as well, until his older brother introduced him to the wonders of opera in general and of Maria Callas in particular. Piano lessons were interrupted by the family’s move to Nairobi, Kenya, where he bought his first turntable (a secondhand Lenco) and raided the bargain bins at a local supermarket looking for classical LPs and cassettes.
 
Dan moved back to South Africa in 1976 and went on to take his MA in English Literature (E. M. Forster) at the University of the Witwatersrand ('Wits'). He also received a First in Music History from the Wits School of Music; there he encountered Mahler's symphonies for the first time, igniting a lifelong passion for the composer's work.
 
A short stint teaching English at the University of Cape Town was followed by a change of career and emigration to the UK in 1985, where he took up a sub-editor's post with a property magazine in London’s Pemberton Row. He witnessed the demise of the 'old' Fleet Street and was working as a chief sub-editor in Docklands when the IRA bomb at South Quay in 1996 put paid to his career as a full-time journalist.
 
Dan lives in Kent, where apart from being an active parent, avid music collector, Apple Mac and World Cinema enthusiast, he reviews and helps to prepare weekly pages for MusicWeb. He is also a regular contributor to Brian Wilson’s bi-monthly Download News, where he focuses on the rapidly developing high-resolution sector of the market. He supports other high-res technologies too – SACD and Blu-ray – but the pressure of space means he reviews in stereo rather than multi-channel.
 
Dan's musical tastes are fairly eclectic, with the emphasis on 19th- and 20th-century repertoire - Berlioz, Mahler, Bruckner, Richard Strauss, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Janácek and Messiaen. He is always keen to explore new and unusual works, and has developed a passion for Nordic composers – see The Music of Kalevi Aho. He also takes an interest in organ music, and a follower of Finland’s fine organists, Kalevi Kiviniemi first among them.
