Composer, conductor, educator and dancer: Imogen Holst lived a completely musical life. She is mainly associated with the achievements of male composers - her father Gustav, and near-contemporary Benjamin Britten with whom she worked for over ten years. But throughout her life she made sure to have space for her own projects as a freelancer - writing books, forming choirs, conducting bands and orchestras at a time it was rare to see a woman in the podium, and composing music that is increasingly being discovered and performed. This short film, shot in her former home in Aldeburgh and presented by Dr Lucy Walker (Head of Public Engagement at Britten Pears Arts), celebrates her life in music, and features movements from one of her most beautiful works, Fall of the Leaf for solo cello, performed by Wallis Power.
