Upon her untimely early death in 1927, Lambert was moved to write this Elegiac Blues For Piano in her memory.Constant Lambert, composer and conductor, was a child prodigy who began composing Orchestral works at a tender age and established himself quickly as a major talent of British music just after the First World War. Over time, he became involved in the world of ballet, conducting at Sadler’s Wells, becoming Music Director of the Vic-Wells Ballet and as a popular Orchestral conductor on BBC Third Programme.
