Composer of the Week: Percy Grainger

Composer of the Week: Percy Grainger featured image

This week on ‘A Little Night Music’ Kathleen Kajioka takes a closer look at Percy Grainger.

This composer from Down Under arrived in the Northern Hemisphere determined to become Australia’s first “composer of worth” – which he was. Although best known for his folk song settings, he was musically adventurous, embracing the new technologies of the early 20th c – including ambitions to eliminate human involvement altogether!

Tune in to “A Little Night Music” every night this week, just after 8 o’clock.
