Antony Beaumont was born in London of Anglo-German and Greek-Romanian parentage. Known primarily as an expert on the music of Zemlinsky and Busoni, he is also a practical musician of remarkable versatility. As a child, he studied violin, viola, piano, and organ, and at the age of sixteen was already making his name as conductor, composer, arranger, writer, and broadcaster. Beaumont read music at Cambridge, where he also gained his first experiences of symphonic and operatic conducting. He subsequently worked as an orchestral violinist in London before settling into an operatic career in Switzerland and Germany. In 1990, he abandoned his theatre career in order to spend more time researching and writing.
Recently he turned his attention, both as researcher and performer, to Kurt Weill, Manfred Gurlitt, and Stefan Wolpe. In a repertoire ranging from early baroque to 20th-century avant-garde, he has recorded orchestral music for Capriccio, Koch International, Chandos, and Phoenix Edition.
