Antony Hopkins (1921 -2014)

Antony Hopkins CBE was an English composer, pianist, conductor, and radio broadcaster.

He was born in London under the name Ernest William Antony Reynolds. His surname was changed to Hopkins when, after his father's early death he was adopted by a master at Berkhamsted School who had been his father's
housemaster.

His works include the operas Lady Rohesia (1947) (based on the Ingoldsby Legends of sixteenth-century England), The Man from Tuscany, and Three's Company (1953); the ballet Café des Sports; and Scena for soprano and strings (which was later arranged for three solo voices and full orchestra).

Hopkins wrote extensively for films, including Here Come the Huggetts (1948), The Pickwick Papers (1952), Cast a Dark Shadow (1955), and Billy Budd (1962).

However, he was perhaps best known for his books of musical analysis and, particularly, for his radio programmes Talking About Music broadcast for many years by the BBC.
Antony Hopkins was appointed a CBE in 1976.
