Gerald Finzi

July 14, 1901 - September 27, 1956
born in London, England, composed during the Modern period
English composer Gerald Finzi (1901-1956) is often labeled as a "pastoralist," although that is too general a term to describe his complete output. Finzi moved in the same circles as Vaughan Williams, Bliss, Holst, and Ferguson, but preferred the countryside and working alone. This is reflected in his personal, idiosyncratic music, where close imitative textures support the melody, and tonality and harmony frequently suggest nostalgia, melancholy, or a slower pace of life. He was influenced by the poetry of Thomas Hardy and the counterpoint and joy of Bach. His work list consists of several song cycles, choral music, and orchestral works. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi

Nice. I love Vaughn-Willi a m s and this is a worthy comparison.
Elegant, gentle, harmonious, and evocative.
Sweet music for a gray day in New Mexico.
This is the 1st time I've heard the music of this composer. Very nostalgic & music that moves right into & thru you. Glad to hear Finzi's music in this venue.
So underrated.. . . . Such a contemporary of Ralph Vaughan Williams!!!
Aaaaeeeyyy!
Lovely. Also my first time hearing his music. Definitely hear the Vaughan-Will i a m s influence. Perfect for relaxation and peaceful moments.
Yes, veddy British, pastoral, very Vaughan-Will i a m s influenced (at least the track I heard), very nice! I'm glad to see composers on this channel that go beyond the Top 40 list.

Should you be seeking relaxation and a sense of peace, Finzi creates it in his magnificent music.

I really like this. I can't believe this is the first time I have ever heard of him. Must keep up the self improvement.
What a nice experience to be introduced to a wholly new composer! Thank you.
Why on earth would this matter to anyone interested in his music?
I surprised I haven't heard of him before since I like Vaughn Williams so much.
Hey, leave out the nonsense talk!

Noted.
It should be noted that I have a birthmark behind my left ear.

It should be noted that Finzi was Jewish.
