Michael Talbot (born 4 January 1943 in Luton[1]) is a British musicologist and composer.

Talbot is a former Professor of Music at the University of Liverpool.[2] An expert in Italian baroque music,[3] Talbot has authored monographs on Antonio Vivaldi and Tommaso Albinoni, and is an editor of the scholarly journal "Studi Vivaldiani". He is also active as a historicist composer, and a member of the "Vox Saeculorum" society.[4]

Talbot's expertise has been called upon in instances where the authenticity and/or provenance of works has been questioned, including the discovery of the possible Vivaldi work Andromeda Liberata.[5]
