Facing the Music: Charles Baeyertz and the Triad
The magazine - The Triad - was founded and edited by Charles Baeyertz in 1893. For its first 22 years, it was published in New Zealand, but in 1915, publication was transferred to Sydney where it was re-launched as an Australasian magazine. The magazine offered well-informed coverage of cultural activities - in New Zealand, Australia, and internationally - in a broad mix of critical and original writing. Notoriously outspoken, Baeyertz was feared and respected as a critic. His music criticism was particularly intelligent and rigorous, making no concessions to personality, or amateur or professional status. His later co-editor, the self-styled 'decadent' Frank Morton, was equally candid. Facing the Music is an engaging biography of a fascinating man and also throws new light on a Ėlong-neglected period of New Zealand's cultural past.
