Constant Lambert studied at the Royal College of Music under Vaughan Williams, R.O. Morris and George Dyson for composition, and Malcolm Sargent for conducting. He first came to prominence in the 1920s as the composer of the ballet score Romeo and Juliet for Diaghilev, influenced by Stravinsky. He was friendly with William Walton and the Sitwells, and helped Walton with Facade.
By 1930 he had shot to fame through the huge success of the jazz-tinged choral fantasia The Rio Grande. But other jazz-related works of the same era, notably the Piano Sonata and Concerto for Piano and Nine Instruments show the darker side of Lambert - harsh and percussive use of jazz in very serious, concentrated pieces with constantly shifting time signatures. In the early 1930s he wrote a lively critique of modern music in the book Music, Ho!, and in 1936 came the bleak but beautiful choral work Summers Last Will and Testament, a masque for chorus and orchestra using Elizabethan dance form. Most of Lambert’s time in the 1930s and 1940s was taken up by conducting and in his work establishing the Vic Wells Ballet with Ninette de Valois. The ballet score Horoscope was composed in the early 1940s. After that only small pieces until the full length ballet score Tiresias was produced in 1951. Lambert died shortly after its first performance, of undiagnosed diabetes aggravated by his drinking. Tiresias (and most of Lambert’s other work) fell into obscurity, although recently there has been something of a revival, with recordings of the Piano Concerto, Summers Last Will and Testament, and Tiresias.
