Abstract:

Percy Grainger's distinguished music career began with a recital in Melbourne in 1892 and was concluded sixty-eight years later with an appearance at America's Dartmouth College. Perhaps no performer of his generation reached so wide an audience through personal appearances; yet, performance was only one facet of the life of this multi-talented man. Grainger was widely traveled, fluent in many languages, and interested in a vast array of subjects and disciplines. In addition to being a pianist of the first rank and a composer of unusual dimensions, he was an author, philologist, inventor, traveler, ethnomusicologist, and athlete. - Introduction.
