Ibbs and Tillett : the rise and fall of a musical empire by Christopher Fifield ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For the greater part of the twentieth century, Ibbs and Tillett's concert agency was to the British music industry what Marks and Spencer is to the world of the department store. The roll-call of famous musicians on its books was unmatched, and included such international stars as Clara Butt, Fritz Kreisler, Pablo Casals, Sergei Rachmaninov, Andres Segovia, Kathleen Ferrier, Myra Hess, Jacqueline du Pre, Clifford Curzon and Vladimir Ashkenazy, to name but a handful. From 1906, the success of the company was due to the dedication of its founders, Robert Leigh Ibbs and John Tillett. After their deaths, the agency was run by the latter's wife, Emmie, who, dubbed the 'Duchess of Wigmore Street', became one of the most formidable yet respected women in British music." "The history of this unique institution and its owners is told here for the first time, often through the letters that were exchanged between the artists themselves and the agency."--BOOK JACKET

Letters and Diaries of Kathleen Ferrier Revised and Enlarged Edition by Christopher Fifield ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1953, at the age of 41, Kathleen Ferrier, England's greatest lyric contralto, lost her courageous battle with breast cancer. Her huge appeal to a wide audience - in concerts, on records, on the radio and in the opera house - has ensured her name endures to this day, despite a career which lasted barely ten years. In just half that time, this former telephone exchange operator was singing on stage at Covent Garden, before royalty at private parties, and at New York's Carnegie Hall. This collection of letters and twelve years of her personal diaries was first published by Boyde
