As a composer he's remembered for his jazz-inspired The Rio Grande yet little extra, and for a guy who selflessly committed the larger a part of his existence to the institution of English ballet his paintings is essentially unrecognized this present day. This booklet amply demonstrates why he merits to be held in larger renown.
With quite a few song examples, wide appendices and a distinct iconography, each element of the profession and lifetime of this outstanding, multi-talented guy is tested. It looksnot basically at his track yet at his journalism, his talks for the BBC, his championing of jazz (in specific Duke Ellington), and - extra privately - his long-standing affair with Margot Fonteyn. this can be an vital biography for an individual attracted to consistent Lambert, ballet and British musical existence within the first a part of the 20th century.
