Young composer and rake from the 1958 Canadian novel A Mixture of Frailties by Robertson Davies. He ends up tutoring singer Monica Gall, and falls into an ill-fated affair with her. He composes an opera, The Golden Asse.

Davies was once a newspaper music critic, so his references are knowledgeable.

Revelstoke may be based on real British composer Peter Warlock (real name Philip Arnold Heseltine, 1894-1930).
