Summary "A book of recollections of Percy Grainger (1882-1961), the Australian-born pianist, folklorist, and composer. Contributors include Edvard Grieg, Benjamin Britten, various members of Grainger's family and performing musicians with whom he played. There are several self-analyzing passages by Grainger himself." "Grainger's music is being revived at a growing rate, especially in the United States, Britain and his native Australia. This is a riveting look at the driven, engaging personality who composed such fascinating pieces."--BOOK JACKET
