He was a junior exhibitor at the RAM (1954–60) and studied the piano and the organ at the RCM (1960–61), then read music at Clare College, Cambridge (BA 1964, MusB 1965, PhD 1968) where his teachers included Nicholas Temperley, Peter le Huray, Thurston Dart, Ian Bent and Charles Cudworth. He joined the staff of the department of music at the University of Liverpool (1968), becoming James and Constance Alsop Professor of Music (1986).
Talbot’s research has focussed on late Italian Baroque music, in particular the concerto, the serenata and the music of Albinoni and Vivaldi. He has published important biographical and critical monograph studies of both composers and has edited many instrumental and vocal works by them and their contemporaries. His writings include contributions to identification and attribution, reports of newly discovered works, and studies of instrumental form and style. He is joint editor of the journal Informazioni e studi vivaldiani. In 1980, in recognition of his work on the history of Italian music, he was made a Cavaliere dell’ Ordine ‘Al merito della Repubblica Italiana’ and he is an external member of the Ateneo Veneto, Venice.
