Percy Pitt was instrumental in bringing Hans Richter to London for the famed Covent Garden Ring Cycles of the early 20th Century, and later on joined the fledgling BBC as its music director, making numerous records with the BBC Wireless Symphony Orchestra, including many “Operatic selections” both on Columbia and its sister label, Regal.

I’d recommend Daniel Chamier’s book “Percy Pitt of Covent Garden and the BBC”, published in 1938. Pitt died during the night of November 22nd 1932, probably from a heart attack. He was only 62. The book is very much a glowing tribute to the man, and therefore paints a very positive picture, but also makes clear that though he may not have been one of the greats, he was a very fine musician – a conductor, pianist, composer, arranger – and a very good music director both at Covent Garden and at the BBC. He spent a very fruitful time in mainland Europe as a student, and was competent in several languages. The letters between him and Richter quoted in the book suggest a very strong and close working relationship, particularly where it comes to their efforts to champion opera in English at Covent Garden, particularly focused around the English Ring of 1908. After that it was very much a losing battle with the syndicate to get opera in the vernacular in the house. It was left to the Beecham Opera Company and the Carl Rosa company to continue the fight, and to perform a wider repertoire than the very traditional one that the syndicate at Covent Garden promoted.

In the early years at the BBC Pitt conducted live broadcasts of several operas – Hansel and Gretel (the first live opera broadcast in Europe, complete on Jan 6 1923), The Magic Flute, Pagliacci, Siegfried, Marriage of Figaro, Faust and Madam Butterfly. Then there was a broadcast of La Boheme with Melba as Mimi.

Like Adrian Boult some years later, Pitt was forcibly retired from the BBC when he reached the age of 60, in January 1929. Hamilton Harty assumed that Pitt’s retirement was voluntary, and wrote to hope that it wasn’t for health reasons.

It’s a fascinating biography, and well worth seeking out a copy.

Prior to his work in the Columbia studios with the BBC Wireless SO, Pitt conducted for HMV – mainly as an accompanist for singers such as Louise Kirkby Lunn, Clarence Whitehill, Luisa Tetrazzini, Minnie Saltzmann-Stevens, Maria Gay, Emmy Destinn, John McCormack, Titta Ruffo, Fernand Ansseau, Miriam Licette, Edith Evans, Rosina Buckman, Robert Radford, Edna Thornton, Marie Louise Edvina, Graziella Pareto, Dmitri Smirnov, Florence Austral and Chaliapin. It’s also worth noting that Pitt did make some purely orchestral records with HMV: Wagner excerpts in particular, and interestingly in 1912, the 2 Intermezzi from Wolf-Ferrari’s Jewels of the Madonna – which he recorded again for Columbia in 1926.

NB – Hans Richter’s conducting is discussed in Filson Young’s 1911 study of music and musicians, “More Mastersingers”, within a section on The Art of the Conductor.
