Frederick Delius

Frederick Delius (January 29, 1862 - June 10, 1934) was an English composer born in Bradford.

He was of German origin, and spent most of his life outside England. Towards the end of his life, he caught syphilis and began to go blind. He therefore employed Eric Fenby as his amanuensis. Fenby later wrote a book about Delius. See also the film Song of Summer directed by Ken Russell based on Fenby's book.

Some of his more well known pieces include:

Less frequently performed pieces include a violin concerto, and a double concerto for violin and cello.
