Malcolm Gillies is an Australian-born musicologist now living in London. From 1981- 1992 he lectured in music history, analysis and criticism at the University of Melbourne and Victorian College of the Arts. Later in his career he became the Vice-Chancellor of two universities in London; in retirement he holds several professorships in different aspects of the arts at Australian, Hungarian and British institutions.
As a music scholar he has written many books about the Hungarian Béla Bartók and the Australian-American Percy Grainger. His co-edited Grainger volumes include The All-Round Man, Grainger on Music, Portrait of Percy Grainger, and Self-Portrait of Percy Grainger, all of which rely heavily on the holdings of the Grainger Museum at the University of Melbourne. His interests in Grainger include biography, analysis, performing style and compositional innovations, including Grainger’s “Free Music” and his work with folk music.
