Sir Granville Bantock: The Forgotten Man of British Music

1 post in this topic

The British composer, Sir Granville Bantock, may very well be one of the greatest composers nobody ever heard of. Until quite recently, I was one of those unfamiliar with his work and yet, in the brief time I have been acqainted with his music, Bantock has become one of my favorite composers. He was a thorough Romantic composer on the grand scale living in the 20th Century. Fortunately, I am not alone in my admiration. A fine and informative documentary has been produce exploring the life and music of this sadly forgotten composer:

And, as a fitting accompaniment for this documentary, here is Bantock's A Pagan Symphony, which was completed in 1927. Enjoy!
