GILBERT VINTER  

(1909 - 1969)

Gilbert Vinter studied bassoon and composition at the Royal Academy of Music. He held posts as conductor of the BBC Concert and Midland Light orchestras and was a familiar name on the air right up to his death. During the years on the staff of the ‘corporation’ he put his arranging skills to good use in dozens of selections for use in the many light music programmes prevalent at the time - none better than his Waltzing with Sullivan where he strings together many of Sir Arthur’s best tunes in 3/4 time. For the record, major works affectionately plundered include The Gondoliers, Victoria and Merrie England, Utopia Ltd, The Pirates of Penzance and Iolanthe.
