Cliff Eisen 
Cliff Eisen, Professor of Music History at King's College London, has written extensively on music of the late eighteenth century, Mozart in particular; he is the author or editor of The Cambridge Mozart Encyclopedia, The New Grove Mozart, Mozart Studies and Mozart Studies 2, and New Mozart Documents, among others. Elected to the Akademie für Mozartforschung (Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum) in 2005, he also published in the Journal of the Royal Musical Association, the Journal of the American Musicological Society, Early Music and Music & Letters , is a regular contributor of programme notes for several recording companies, the Royal Opera (Covent Garden) and Carnegie Hall (New York), and has lectured in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, France, Ireland, South Korea and Japan.

One special interest is late eighteenth-century performance practice; for some years he was advisor to Robert Levin and Christopher Hogwood for their recordings of Mozart's piano concertos. And his work on Mozart sources, as well as on philosophical issues concerning the relationship of text, work and performance, have given rise to several well-received editions of works by Mozart, including the symphonies K425 ('Linz'), K543 and K551 ('Jupiter') K543, the complete sonatas and variations for keyboard and violin, the violin concertos K218 and K219 and the piano concerto K271, among others. Series editor for The Early String Quartet (Steglein Publications) and founding editor of the journal Eighteenth-Century Music, he has also worked on the history of chamber music generally and the eighteenth-century Viennese string quintet in particular as well as changing concepts of virtuosity from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, and the relationship between biography and music history.
