Oliver Neighbour

British Academy

Alan Tyson was a musicologist who made an outstanding contribution to understanding issues of authenticity and chronology in the works of Mozart and Beethoven often based on detailed study of the paper used in sketchbooks and manuscripts. Yet he had qualified as a psychoanalyst and clinical psychiatrist, and until 1969, when he obtained a visiting professorship at Columbia University, musicology was only a scholarly hobby. In 1971, Tyson was awarded a Senior Research Fellowship at All Souls College Oxford and thereafter pursued it as a full-time career. He was elected Fellow of the British Academy in 1978. Obituary by Oliver Neighbour FBA.
