(1914 - 1992)

Largely self-taught as a musician, Harold Truscott spent much of his life as a lecturer in music in Huddersfield. His compositions were largely neglected in his life-time, leading him to write very considerably for the piano and for chamber ensemble, where performance was more probable. He was, however, a natural orchestral composer, with a fine command of the resources of the orchestra, writing, as always, in an unfashionably approachable style, which can only now be appreciated.
