Salute to Percy Grainger by Percy Grainger( )

12 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A composer with an extraordinary ear for sonority, original in his outlook, sometimes misunderstood, now revered, Percy Grainger is one of Australia's most unique sons, and, in the words of Sir Peter Pears, one of its "most independent and single-minded spirits". Many of these recordings, of vocal and chamber orchestra pieces, were made by Decca in 1968 and 1972 and issued, together with a 1927 recording of Grainger playing his Country Gardens and of Peter Pears and Osian Ellis performing Six Dukes wenta-fishin' in two volumes, with the title Salute to Percy Grainger. The title is retained for this anthology and to it is added Sir John Eliot Gardiner's Deutsche Grammophon recording of The Warriors, presenting nearly two hours of some of Grainger's finest utterances in some of their earliest (and best) performances to be captured on record. Ten of these items [CD2: 1-10] make their first appearance on CD. The performers are a Who's Who of great Decca artists. Benjamin Britten and Steuart Bedford share the conducting duties on the Decca recordings, and the vocalists include Sir Peter Pears, Anna Reynolds and John Shirley-Quirk, together with the Ambrosian Singers and the Wandsworth Boys' Choir. The notes are written by celebrities too Sir Peter Pears and Grainger scholar, John Bird and include affectionate reminiscences. Complete song texts are included. "This is an altogether delightful anthology, beautifully played and recorded by these distinguished artists the recording is an extremely good one" Penguin Guide "the enchantments remain will surely give pleasure" Gramophone
