He is a member of Trinity College, Cambridge; the Salzburg Centre for Research in the Early English Novel, University of Salzburg; the Maryvale Institute, Birmingham; and the Institute for Continuing Education at Madingley Hall, Cambridge. His publications include books and articles on the late-seventeenth-, eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century novel (particularly the Gothic novel and Sir Walter Scott), the Bible, and European culture, with special emphasis on the Romantic opera and ballet, particularly the work of Giacomo Meyerbeer (a four-volume English edition of his diaries, a collection of studies, a reading of the operas, and a guide to research), Daniel-Francois-Esprit Auber and the opera-comique, Ludwig Minkus and the Romantic Ballet. Mark Starr, conductor, teacher and musicologist, is a native of New York. He was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and studied conducting at the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome. In 1970, he joined the faculty at the University of Wisconsin and in 1972 became a conductor and professor at Stanford. He has conducted many orchestras both in the United States and in Europe (Radio-France in Paris, l'Orchestre national and l'Orchestre philharmonique, the Residence-Orkest of The Hague, the orchestras of the Netherlands Radio Union in Hilversum, the Orchestre national de Monte-Carlo, the BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra, and the Berliner Konzerthaus Orchester, formerly the Berliner Sinfonie-Orchester). He runs a website for Noteworthy Musical Editions, a project involving the compilation of the various catalogues and the demo recordings for each work featured.
