Percy Grainger was a man of many seasons — not only a composer and pianist but a musical folklorist, wind band arranger, polyglot, watercolorist, early music expert, clothing designer, prodigious letter writer, essayist, and philosophical thinker. His popular works, like “Country Gardens” and “Molly on the Shore,” were best-sellers of the early twentieth-century music world, while his experiments in avant-garde music anticipated many artistic developments in the later twentieth century and beyond. Today his music is performed even more widely than during his lifetime.
Presented by Mark N. Grant, Vice-President of the International Percy Grainger Society and a Board member since 1981. Mark is an accomplished composer, author, and music commentator.
