HAVERGAL BRIAN
(1876-1972)

Born in Dresden, Staffordshire. Except for some instrumental lessons by local teachers, Britain's most prolific symphonist was basically self-taught. He composed incessantly throughout his long life but only saw his music discovered when he was in his eighties. Prior to his 32 numbered Symphonies he wrote a
"Fantastic Symphony" in 1907 that was later broken up to become "Fantastic Variations on an Old Rhyme" and "Festal Dance." For orchestra his other works include a Violin Concerto, Cello Concerto, 5 English Suites and 3 Comedy Overtures.

See BCSD for: Symphonies Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26, 28, 31, 32

HENRY BALFOUR GARDINER
(1877-1950)

Born in London. He was first educated at the Charterhouse School and Oxford but then went on to study in Frankfurt with Iwan Knorr. As part of the "Frankfurtt Group with his fellow young composers Grainger, Quilter, O’Neill and Scott he used his connections to promote his friends’ music while doing little to push his own compositions leaving most of his works unpublished . He had a very brief academic career at Winchester College and made a much greater impact as a conductor of the works of his composing contemporaries. He composed steadily though not prolifically and gave up composition entirely at a relatively early age. His output consisted of 2 Symphonies (that are probably not extant) as well as other orchestral, choral, chamber, instrumental and vocal works.

FRANK BRIDGE
(1879-1941)

Born in Brighton. He studied with Charles Stanford at the Royal College of Music. Bridge was probably the most qualified British composer who never wrote a symphony. When he finally started one it was too late. Bridge had a successful career as a conductor and teacher and composed much music of the highest quality. His major works for orchestra include the suite "The Sea," Dance Rhapsody, Dance Poem, the tone poems "Isabella" and "Summer" and the rhapsody "Enter Spring."

CYRIL SCOTT
(1879-1970)

Born in Oxton, Cheshire. Went to Frankfurt am Main at the age of 12 to study with Engelbert Humperdinck and Lazarro Uzielli and returned there for further study with Iwan Knorr. He composed prolifically in all genres during his long life and had great success at an early stage. This did not last and his music is only starting to be revived at the present time after many decades of obscurity. He wrote a Symphony No. 2 in A minor in 1901-2 that was later broken up into other works, a Sinfonietta for Strings, Organ and Harp and a Sinfonietta for Strings. There are also 2 Piano Concertos, a Violin Concerto, Cello Concerto and many other works for orchestra.

JOHN FOULDS
(1880-1939)

Born in Manchester. He learned the piano and cello at a very young age and used these skills to earn a living in theater orchestras before joining the Hallé Orchestra at the age of 20. He held various musical director posts in London before going to India in 1935 where he immersed himself in the study of Indian folk music while still engaged as a conductor. His music has recently emerged from obscurity and he is found to have been a serious composer far ahead of his own time and not just a creator of light music. Much of his extensive catalogue has been lost but his 1st Cello Concerto (1911), a number of still unrecorded orchestral works and a World Requiem are still extant.

FREDERICK S. KELLY
(1881-1916)

Born in Sydney. He went to England for his education at Eton and Oxford and had additional training in Frankfurt with Iwan Knorr. As an accomplished pianist he was active as a chamber musician and also served as an adviser to the London-based Classical Concert Society. His early death in action cut short a very promising career. In addition to the Elegy he composed a Serenade for Flute and Orchestra and a number of chamber, instrumental and vocal works.

PERCY ALDRIDGE GRAINGER
(1882-1961)

Born in Melbourne. His first musical instructions came from his mother and Louis Pabst ( a pupil of Anton Rubinstein) before going to the Frankfurt Hoch Conservatory for studies with James Kwast and Iwan Knorr, as well as private lessons with Busoni in Berlin. Grainger excelled as a concert pianist and toured extensively. Though his time in England was brief he was as an important paticipant in the folk song revival movement and noted down the song "Brigg Fair" and introduced it to Delius. Moving on to America before World War I his career also included teaching and conducting. He composed voluminously and produced more than 600 works very few of which were more than several minutes long. Unjustly remembered by most as the quaint composer of such works as "Country Gardens," Grainger was a sui generis creative mind whose experiments with harmony and orchestration have mostly gone unrecognized. Fortunately, he has never lacked for recordings.

HAYDN WOOD
(1882-1959)

Born in Slaithwaite, Yorkshire. He was taught the violin by his brother and went to the Royal College of Music where Stanford was one of his teachers. He was enormously successful as a composer of light orchestral music and popular songs. He spent some years on the Isle of Man and wrote several works that reflect the folk music of the place. His major serious orchestral works are a Piano Concerto, Violin Concerto, Philharmonic Variations for Cello and Orchestra and a Symphony in D minor. The latter work is presumably lost.

SIR ARNOLD BAX
(1883-1953)

Born in London. He studied at the Royal Academy of Music with Frederick Corder and Tobias Matthay. Coming from a wealthy background, Bax needed no musical employment to be able to pursue his creativity in both music and literature. He wrote 7 numbered Symphonies as well as an early unnumbered Symphony entitled "Spring Fire" and also composed a large amount of other works for orchestra including Concertos for Violin and Cello and a series of tone poems from which "Tintagel," "The Garden of Fand" and "November Woods" are the most popular. He wrote a Symphony in F minor in 1907 but left it unorchestrated. He was appointed Master of the King's Musick in 1942.
