Battle for Music

Incompetent management and inartistic direction have brought the London Philharmonic to ruin at the start of the war. The players stick it out, book tours, find friends and make a go of it.

This is naturally of the greatest interest at every point and every seam of the story, which is a true one (the orchestra appear as themselves and give concert performances of great works, Lambert, Boult and Sargent conducting). J.B. Priestley lends a hand.
