FREDERICK DELIUS (1862-1934)

Born in Bradford to German parents. His family had not destined him for a musical career but due to the persuasion of Edvard Grieg his father allowed him to attend the Leipzig Conservatory where he was a pupil of Hans Sitt and Carl Reinecke.

His Concertos and other pieces in classical forms are not his typical works and he is best known for his nature-inspired short orchestral works.
