Summary:
In the thirty years since his Centenary in 1982 it has become even clearer that Percy Grainger (1882-1961) - composer, pianist and revolutionary - was a man born out of his time. Many of his ideas, both musical and social, sit far more easily in our contemporary world. Those thirty years have also seen a notable expansion of interest in Grainger's music.

schema:description"In the thirty years since his Centenary in 1982 it has become even clearer that Percy Grainger (1882-1961) - composer, pianist and revolutionary - was a man born out of his time. Many of his ideas, both musical and social, sit far more easily in our contemporary world. Those thirty years have also seen a notable expansion of interest in Grainger's music. Innumerable recordings have been made, including the first complete Grainger recording survey by Chandos in its monumental Grainger Edition. The growth of the internet has made it possible, as never before, for Grainger's music to be heard widely. The central theme of The New Percy Grainger Companion is to give information and help from established musicians for performing and listening to this life-celebrating repertoire. The Companion's fully detailed, up-to-date Catalogue of Works - the most complete of any existing catalogue - gives invaluable assistance. Authoritative contextual chapters in the Companion offer some surprising new background information, together with thoughtful evaluations which signal a new twenty-first century perspective in Grainger scholarship. PENELOPE THWAITES, pianist, composer, and broadcaster, has performed and researched Grainger's music for over three decades and her recordings include an extensive Grainger discography."@en
