Martin Harlow is a musicologist specialising in music of the Classical period, in particular in wind repertories and related issues of performance practice.

The focus of his most recent research is the music of Mozart and his contemporaries. His edited volume of essays Mozart’s Chamber Music with Keyboard was published in 2012 by Cambridge University Press. Articles on Mozart’s writing process and implications for performance have been published recently. A monograph, Mozart’s Harmoniemusik, is in preparation. Other published work has appeared in scholarly journals, including Musical Times, Acta Mozartiana and the Galpin Society Journal.

He also works on scholarly and performing editions, and a number of his editions of nineteenth-century chamber music have appeared from Bärenreiter and Ut Orpheus Edizioni, the latter having published his Urtexts of a number of Harmoniemusik transcriptions of Beethoven. Collaboration with the UK-based wind group, the Albion Ensemble, has produced recordings of these on the Hyperion and Somm labels and performances at the Wigmore Hall in London. He has recently completed an edition of Anton Eberl’s chamber music with winds for A-R Editions.

Professor Harlow worked as Vice Principal at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK, until 2019. He was made Fellow of the College in 2008, and is now Emeritus Professor of Music of the RNCM
