One of the great conductors of the 20th century, Sir Malcolm Sargent took music to the masses but alienated his orchestral players. Find out more about his life.
In 1928 Sargent became conductor of the Royal Choral Society, retaining this post for four decades until his death. The society was famous in the 1920s and 1930s for staged performances of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's 'The Song of Hiawatha' at the Royal Albert Hall, a work with which Sargent's name became synonymous.
