GRAINGER, P.: Folk-Inspired Works for Piano Duet and Duo (Weichert, Rave)

The essence of Percy Grainger’s music is most evident in his piano pieces. He took ownership of traditional and popular influences, rejecting outdated conventions to create works of ingenious variation, textures and moods. Grainger’s sparkling genius can be heard throughout, ranging from the fantastically popular Country Gardens to the elaborate Fantasy on ‘Porgy and Bess’.
