Research Interests of Colin McAllister
Colin McAllister's entire career has been made as a collaborator among people with creative ideas and scholarly inquiry, generating innovative and meaningful projects. This includes 20 years as an international guitar soloist, ensemble performer and conductor with nearly 100 world premiere performances and numerous recordings to my credit. His repertoire spans the gamut of historical periods and styles from late fourteenth century polyphony to recent contemporary music that crosses genres as well as jazz. He is also an historian, with research centered on apocalyptic paradigms in music, third and fourth century apocalyptic literature, and the early medieval commentary tradition on the Revelation of John.
