Grandson of the French violinist and composer Prosper Sainton, who married the English singer and composer Charlotte Dolby, Philip Sainton had a career principally as a viola player. An accident induced him later to concentrate on composition.
Perhaps Philip Sainton’s most distinguished work is his score for John Huston’s film Moby Dick.
