(1906 - 1995)

Hubert Klyne Headley showed early musical gifts and was particularly influenced when he was 10 by a meeting with Ravel. From 1939 to 1954 he taught theory and composition at the University of California, Santa Barbara, at the same time winning a reputation as a composer, concert pianist and conductor. In 1954 he became head of the department of composition at the Cornish School of Applied Arts in Seattle, moving finally to Vancouver.

Orchestral Music

Headley’s compositions are gradually starting to regain their former popularity, reflecting the spirit of America; they are couched in an accessible if unfashionable musical idiom. His two piano concertos and Symphony No. 1 for Radio date from the 1940s, while his California Suite celebrates various scenes in the state.
