Philip Sainton


Born in Arques-la-Bataille, Seine-Maritime, France, Sainton served as a chemist in the Middle East during World War I. He later became principal violist of the Queen’s Hall Orchestra and the BBC Symphony, where he remained until 1944. As a composer, Sainton gained notoriety with Sea Pictures (1923) and his 1939 tone poem, The Island. As part of the revolving door of arrangers on A KING IN NEW YORK, his working relationship with Chaplin was tense and short-lived.
