Percy Grainger

John Bird
 

One of the world’s most popular pianists, Percy Grainger, was also one of our most innovative composers and instrument-makers. He was also a significant folk-song collector with a teeming intellect. He was known for his masochistic sexuality, his lifelong absorption with his mother, his Nordic triumphalism and his curious Anglo-Saxon form of language.

This biography includes a prefatory note by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears, and an appreciation by Leopold Stokowski. Included in the extensive appendices are a list of Grainger's published compositions, a discography, a list of his Duo-Art Piano Rolls and two essays on Free Music and Elastic Scoring.

This fully revised edition includes much new biographical material from Bird's continuing research.
