Biography

British internationally known conductor knighted by King George VI in 1937. He conducted the Ballet Russe to Britain's National Opera Company from 1928-1931, and was music director of the Bach Choir in Vienna, Boston, Salzburg and New York. Boult toured West Germany in 1951, the USSR in 1956 and served as the director of the BBC. Known as considerate, unselfish and reliable, he was an un-sensational conductor, though not unremarkable. Boult was the author of an autobiography, "My Own Trumpet," and two books on conducting.

Died on 2/23/1983, Farnham, England.
