Percy Grainger

Percy Grainger

Percy Aldridge Grainger (1882-1961)

Percy Grainger was born George Percy Grainger at Brighton, Victoria, Australia, on 8 July 1882, the son of John Harry Grainger (1855-1917), architect and engineer, and his wife, Rosa Annie (Rose) Aldridge (1861-1922). He spent his childhood in Melbourne, Victoria, where he was privately educated under the guidance of his musically gifted mother. He received supplementary lessons in languages, art, elocution and drama, and the piano. His early interest in classical legends and Icelandic sagas influenced him for the rest of his life.
