Frederick Delius

January 29, 1862 - June 10, 1934
born in Bradford, Yorkshire, England, composed during the Romantic period
Frederick Delius (1862-1934), one of the most distinctive and individualistic British composers of the early 20th century, spent most of his career abroad, finally settling in Paris. His reflective, gently lyrical music has a sound that was influenced more by international trends (particularly Impressionism) than by British musical traditions. Although blind and paralyzed by the end of his life, he continued to compose by dictating music to his disciple, Eric Fenby. His most important works include A Mass of Life, the opera A Village Romeo & Juliet, and the tone poems On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring and Brigg Fair. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi

Sublime... that's the only word I can come up with to describe many of Delius' works... but the best is Late Swallows. Call me a sentimental sap, but some of those chords and phrases just break your heart.

What a great biography. I'd love to see similar bios for your other composers.

His Florida Suite takes me right back there, except to the Old Florida, not the Disney version.
"Late Swallows" is just about the most heartbreakin g l y beautiful classical song ever written, beside's Pavane for a Dead Princess... just a masterpiece.

Without Delius there is no Gershwin.
I discovered Delius through the Ken Russell biography. Such sweet music from a thoroughly disagreeable and Nietsche justified egotist.Perc y Grainger an even more interesting and eccentric man was a good friend of his
Raymond Richard Neutra
Delius's music is accessible and pleasant. Occasionally a bit too obvious, but still always enjoyable when one is not in too demanding a state of mind. I put his works alongside those of Gustav Holst, Ralph Vaughn Williams and other favorites of their type. Not on a par with the great geniuses of composition, but a fine, entertaining composer who created many evocative works.

I stumbled on him. Its great hearing somebody new (and not heard in the background before not realizing it.) He puts me right outdoors in a contemplativ e mood.

I heard a recording on cassette of 'Hassan' by F. Delius and I thought it was really great. I ended up getting a box set with that recording and Elgars 'The Starlight Express', also a good recording.
I came to Delius through the French impressionis t composers, especially Debussy. When I am in a contemplativ e mood, his music evokes in me images of a simpler and happier time and place.
Delius is one of my all-time favorite composers.
