Linda Phillips, who was born in Melbourne and has lived most of her life there, celebrated her one-hundredth birthday on 8 June 1999. As a composer of chamber music and songs, she was active during the 1930s and 1940s and into the 1950s, when she was well known for her regular broadcasts over ABC radio, usually with herself as pianist. During 1949-76 she was music critic for the Melbourne Sun and adjudicator for the Sun Aria. Beginning with a brief biography, this retrospective of her life outlines her achievements as a musician/critic and provides an insight into the difficulties she faced in a climate of dismissive and unsupportive attitudes towards Australian composers, and female music critics.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
