Richard Temple Savage in London - January, 1937

from A voice from the Pit: Reminiscences of an Orchestral Musician, page 52:

In January 1937 we were concerned with another short opera season with various conductors as well as Beecham. Constant Lambert did "Manon Lescaut" - he was primarily a ballet conductor and always had difficulty following singers.
