‘Gerard Hoffnung was a true original, in his brief 34 years he negotiated careers as a schoolmaster, cartoonist, music festival organizer, exhibited painter and tuba player, produced five best-selling books of humorous drawings about music and become an accomplished raconteur and broadcaster. We sample a brace of his immortals in The Bricklayer and French Widows, both from his speech to the Oxford Union’.(J.Tracy)
