Percy A. Grainger  (1882-1961)
Last updated: 31.10.17
According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Percy Aldridge Grainger was an Australian-born composer and pianist; lived 1900-15 in London and thereafter in USA (naturalised). Pupil in Germany of Busoni; friend of Edvard Hagerup Grieg. Collected and edited English folk music and based some compositions on it. Also wrote choral works, many short orchestral pieces (e.g. Country Gardens (1919), Handel in the Strand); usually published his work in several different (and often unconventional) instrumental versions. Used deliberately anglicised vocabulary, e.g. "louden" (crescendo), "middle-fiddle" (viola), "bass fiddle" - to mean cello, not double-bass, which term he retained.
Personal remarks
As mentioned elsewhere in these webpages, I am in no way closely related to this world-famous gentleman (although it would be nice to boast of it!). Any ancestral connection would have been at least six or seven generations ago before his family was in Australia.
