The World's Greatest Music
Frederick Delius is an English Romantic composer, whose best pieces include 'A Mass of Life' and 'A Village Romeo and Juliet'. Find out more about the man and his most famous music with our handy guide.
Recognition came late to Delius; before 1899, when he was already 37, his works were largely unpublished and unknown to the public. When the symphonic poem 'Paa Vidderne' was performed at Monte Carlo on 25 February 1894 in a programme of works from British composers, the Musical Times listed the composers as "...Balfe, Mackenzie, Oakeley, Sullivan ... and one Delius, whoever he may be".
