Warwick Braithwaite

I am currently editing the autobiography of the New Zealand-born conductor Warwick Braithwaite (1896-1971), whose career began with Joseph O'Mara's touring opera company in 1919. Braithwaite was widely recognised at the time as the youngest professional conductor in Britain, and went on to become a seminal figure in our musical life for half a century, holding important posts with the National Orchestra of Wales, the Scottish Orchestra, Vic-Wells Opera, Sadler's Wells Ballet, Covent Garden Opera, the Royal Ballet and Welsh National Opera. He also conducted most of the major orchestras in Britain, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.
I would be delighted to hear reminiscences from anyone who may have worked with him or attended his performances.
