It was a sad day for music in Australia when Christopher Martin, highly respected and much loved musician and conductor, died of leukaemia in October 2011, aged 81.
Always a great raconteur, in the months before his death, Chris talked to writer Mary Ryllis Clark about his rich and varied life in Europe and Australia.
The resulting memoir, Christopher Martin ‘In the Middle of the Music’: Memoir and Memories, is poignant, entertaining and
reflective about the intense world of music and musicians.
