Description Boris Perott, a Russian physician, came to England after the Revolution. His lifelong association with the guitar and in particular his creation of the Philharmonic Society of Guitarists in London, in 1929, left its mark in the world of the classical guitar in Great Britain. Boris Perott is also known as Julian Bream’s first teacher. This biography covers his life in Russia and Finland where he played concerts in public, and in Great Britain where he published more than 60 articles about the classical guitar in-between the World Wars. Boris Perott was always rather secretive about the first 38 years of his life before he established himself in London. This biography reveals many details of his parallel careers in Russia, as a medical doctor, as a guitarist, as a language and literature teacher, and as an author of many articles and books on a variety of subjects.
