Dr Allan Badley is a specialist in late eighteenth-century Viennese music. His publications include several hundred scholarly editions of works by major contemporaries of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, including editions of the complete works for piano and orchestra by Ferdinand Ries, mass settings by Wanhal, Hofmann and Hummel, and an extensive series of symphonies and concertos. He has published articles on Leopold Hofmann, Ignaz Pleyel, and Haydn, and more recently, contributed analytical essays on the symphonies of Wagenseil and Pleyel for The Symphonic Repertoire – The Eighteenth-Century Symphony edited by Barthia Churgin and Mary Sue Morrow (Indiana University Press, 2012). He is co-founder of the Hong Kong-based publishing house Artaria Editions, which is widely regarded as one of the leading specialist publishers of 18th-century music. Allan Badley is a University of Auckland Distinguished Alumni Award winner (2003) and in 2007 he was awarded the Goldene-Pleyel-Medaille of the Internationale Ignaz Joseph Pleyel Gesellschaft (Austria).
