About this title


Herman Finck (1872 - 1939) was a celebrated musical theatre conductor of the early 20th century, with a twenty year term as both musical director and composer at the Palace Theatre in London, followed and overlapped by sessions at the Queen's Theatre and the Drury Lane Theatre. He conducted the London premieres of many romantic musicals including Rose Marie, The Desert Song and Showboat; composed, arranged and orchestrated a great deal of music, particularly for revues (including Round the Map and The Passing Show), wrote around thirty theatre shows including operettas and ballets, and composed many light orchestral pieces and popular songs including 'I'll make a man of you' and 'Gilbert the Filbert'. As conductor he worked with many of the great luminaries of the period, including Anna Pavlova, Vaslav Nijinsky, Vesta Tilley, Harry Lauder, Edith Day and Marie Lloyd. Finck was also a celebrated wit, bon viveur, and clubman, and his autobiography includes many gems of theatrical anecdotage and stories of his famous friends, ranging from Dan Leno to Sir Edward Elgar. It presents a fascinating and wide-ranging picture of life in London musical theatre in the early part of the twentieth century.
