FREDERIC HYMEN COWEN  

(1852 - 1935)

Distinguished in his time as a conductor, pianist and composer, Frederick Cowen was once known as ‘the English Schubert’ for his contribution to English song. He regarded himself as a symphonist, with six symphonies to his credit, but excelled in lighter music, as exemplified in his overture The Butterfly’s Ball, inspired by a popular children’s poem.
