Percy Grainger

July 8, 1882 - February 21, 1961
born in Brighton, Melbourne, Australia, composed during the Modern period
Percy Grainger (1882-1961) was a tireless teacher and composer remembered for his arrangements of music for countless combinations of instruments, most notably for band. His aim was to make music a democratic art, accessible to all. At first, he earned a living as a concert and recording pianist, then gradually moved more into education. Grainger was one of the first ethnomusicologists to collect and record folk music, and his arrangements frequently try to capture non-melodic or non-harmonic aspects of the original. Grainger, although he became an American citizen, was central to the development of Australian music as distinct from other Western music. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi

I remember the name and music as a youngster. Thanks to Mama, we learned to love all genres of music. His music is grand!

We played Irish Tune and Bonnie Doons for band one year.
Patsy..Prett y slim biographic details. Not much of a fan eh? Grainger loved working with students but disliked Academia intensely... n o t that you were interested.. .
Nice choice for my working in the office on WEEKEND!

I have loved Grainger's music since I was young and played Linc. Posy in concert band. He was known to be a walker preferring to travel on foot when he could. He also wrote a lot of his music in his head as he walked. A story of a visit to Chapel Hill, NC has it that, when he showed up unexpectedly , he told his hosts that he had walked from the airport because he preferred it to a taxi or someone coming to pick him up. That's 18 miles. Is it true? I don't know but it's a really good story.
Yes I agree, please add Lincolnshire Posy for concert band!
faithn86
I love Grainger! How can I get a totally "Graninger radio station with his works only?
samurai_pala d i n
Pandora, please add Lincolnshire Posey!
Original yet somehow familiar. I was familiar with his band music, but there is something so peaceful and understated about this arrangement.

First time listening to Percy, and loving it. I respect his passion for teaching and making so many contribution s to the masses via music.

This man and his music are absolutely fascinating! I've been amazed at the connections people have had to him in the rural northeast Georgia area where I live.
I'm a clarinetist and first experienced Grainger through his works for wind band. After researching his life and knowing how he was primarily known as a pianist, you can really begin to hear just how well Grainger understood the capabilities of the piano and the technical skill that he must've possessed.
Thanks, Pandora!

Hey Pandora, can you please find his wind ensemble music for us listeners?
Grainger knew how to bring out peoples imagination. . . . . l o v e his music.
Grainger is one the most important composers of wind band literature. Unfortunatel y Pandora does not have any of his great pieces for this genre.
One of the wonderful things about Grainger is his anabashed emotionality in his songs! He really wears his heart on his sleve in a musical sense. When it's a happy song, it's the most joyful you've ever felt and when it's sad, you feel like you're in the pits of despair. I can always find a Grainger song to fit almost any emotion I'm feeling!
