‘A conductor of stature excelling in large-scale works’, wrote one critic after hearing Neville Dilkes conduct Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony for the first time. Others have described his performan ces as ‘fresh and alive in every detail’, as ‘having rare insight’, and as being ‘unashamedly expressive’, much in the way Barbirolli’s used to be.

This diary describes not only a conducting career but also covers childhood memories, family life and his passion for sailing, through happy and turbulent years.
