Percy Grainger: The Accidental Futurist


From the democratisation of art to the promotion of non-western musical traditions, Grainger's ideas made him an outsider in his age. But it didn't stop there: a vegetarian and extreme fitness junkie, designer of multi-coloured costumes and supporter of 'sexual outsiders', it's no wonder that it took so long for the rest of the world to begin to get a handle on the composer.

Let the Grainger Museum lead you on a journey through the life and works of one of music's most idiosyncratic geniuses, and compare your own time and place with his in the exhibition Percy Grainger: The Accidental Futurist.
