Peter Warlock, Frank Bridge, Lord Berners, Gerald Finzi, John Ireland – names perhaps not forgotten, though not as celebrated today as their admirers feel they should be. Amid the rightly acclaimed works of Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Britten and Tippett, the composers we encounter on this course often get lost somewhere in between. Our aim is to try and redress that situation by exploring the lives and works of these brilliantly gifted and in some cases anarchic figures, each of whom made vital contributions to the richness of our musical culture.
