Basil Cameron, CBE was an English conductor. He was born Basil George Cameron Hindenberg in Reading, Berkshire, England, the son of a German immigrant family. He took up the violin at age 8, and later studied for four years at the Berlin Hochschule. He began his violin career studying with Joseph Joachim and Leopold Auer, later joining the London Symphony Orchestra. In 1912, Hindenberg began conducting at the seaside resort of Torquay. In 1914, at the start of World War I, it was considered less than ideal in England to bear such a Germanic-sounding name as Hindenberg, so the family name was discreetly dropped and he adopted his third name, Cameron, as his professional surname. He led festivals of Wagner and of Richard Strauss with the Torquay orchestra, which brought him to prominence in the English musical scene.
