"Gerald Finzi is one of the best known 20th century English composers. While he is especially famous as a song-writer, for his sensitive settings of poets such as Hardy and Wordsworth, he also wrote in other genres: notable works include the exquisite contata Dies Natalis, his cello and clarinet concertos." "In this study of his life and works, Diana McVeagh, the renowned Elgar and Finzi scholar, has made use of interviews with the main figures in his life, correspondence with contemporaries such as Vaughan Williams, Edmund Blunden, Arthur Bliss, Edmund Rubbra, Howard Ferguson and Herbert Howells, and her access to previously unpublished material in the form of his widow, Joy's unpublished journal. The Finzi that emerges is a multi-faceted and complex character." "The author shows how he developed from a solitary introverted youth into a man with strong views on everything from education, pacifism, vegetarianism, to the Arts and Crafts movement, the English pastoral tradition, English apple varieties, and the significance of ancestry, friendship, and marriage in an artist's life. She also discusses every work within the narrative of Finzi's life, and shows what makes his output so outstanding."--BOOK JACKET
