Outstanding research and presentation of the life and music of a man who prevented British ballet from going under in the late 30s and 40s, at the expense, regrettably of his composing career.
Don't just take my word for it- this is the verdict of the founder of Sadlers'Wells/Royal ballet, Ninette de Valois.

Excellent book my by colleague Stephen Lloyd who spent much time in gathering all the information about this interesting and somewhat neglected composer. The book itself is of very high quality and the paper used is first rate.

The subject of this book was a genius. He was as perceptive a critic, musician, composer, conductor as anyone of his age in England - 1925-1951. This book details all his works. It has enabled this reader to learn of compositions that he hadn't heard before, notably Lambert's "Rio Grande" and "Summer's Last Will and Testament", and, further, of the works of the Italian composer Busoni, in particular his massive piano concerto. In this way the book has been a catalyst for some highly significant music to come my way for the first time. However, as a biography the book lacks perception of its subject, and to an extent thereby baffles the reader. Lambert was a loner and a complex man. Having read and enjoyed the book, I am content to develop my interest in the music, and the volume will be put to one side.
