An introduction to Percy Grainger
Australian-born composer and pianist
Percy Grainger, was an eccentric figure and lifelong experimenter
who is best known for a selection of exquisite folk-song
arrangements including Country Gardens and Molly on the Shore.
Part of the English folksong movement: Grainger collected over
500 folksongs and traditional tunes which he drew on when
composing his original and impressive folksong
arrangements. Grainger's music is
universally popular, with the well-loved Country Gardens and many
others being instantly recognisable.
This CD includes the cream of Grainger's vast output and the carefully planned compilation is both an ideal introduction to this extraordinary composer's music and a must-have CD for Grainger's many existing admirers.
