Wonderful comedic semi-biography
27 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Excellent performances by all involved. Timothy West is especially brilliant, but then again, he had the best material! A lot of this dialogue are Beecham quotes. For example "Ball?" "Ball, Sir Thomas." "Oh. How very singular." Dry, witty, that was Sir Thomas. Terry Wale fantastic, conveying the spirit of Sir Thomas,trying so hard to deal with the nonsense of the maestro. Not to mention the people who had to deal with him.I heard a recording of him berating a piccolo player for not performing his part in "O, wi will ich triumpherim" in Mozarts "Seraglio". He did it nastily at first, then moved it to nice. That is Beecham.
