Georg received his Ph.D. from the University of Southampton in 2015 and holds degrees from Newcastle University (B.A. in Music) and the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England (M.Phil. in Performance). Embedded in the Schenker Documents Online international research project, his doctoral dissertation explored socio-cultural aspects of German music journalism during the fin-de-siècle and the first world war. He has presented his research at the Fifth International Schenker Symposium (2013) and the Royal Musical Association annual conference in 2016, and has been published in Music Analysis. Prior to joining RILM in 2016, Georg has worked as a freelance double bass player for a range of UK and international orchestras for roughly a decade, and as a news editor for a Liverpool-based media company serving the maritime community. At RILM Georg handles predominantly German-language records on all areas of music.
