Percy Grainger at Kings Place

February 19:  with the lovely Richard to hear a wonderful programme of Percy Grainger.  PG was Australian and had a great interest in music from the Far East which played a great part in some of his compositions.  Always of interest to someone of my mixed background.

Here is PG’s take on Dowland’s “Now Oh, Now” – the original plangency remains but with a bitter-sweet edge.

Pianist Penelope Thwaites from Vol III of Grainger’s complete piano works.
