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 October 1932, Sargent suffered a near-fatal attack of tuberculosis. For almost two years he was unable to work, and it was only later in the 1930s that he returned to the concert scene. In 1936, he conducted his first opera at Covent Garden, Gustave Charpentier's 'Louise'.
