Search for the sublime
An evening of Percy Grainger
20 June 2018 / Grainger Museum
Play On and Swampland Magazine are proud to present one enigmatic event in memory of one eccentric man: Percy Grainger. Held in collaboration with The University of Melbourne’s Grainger Museum, this’ll be one night to discover, or rekindle your relationship with one of Australia’s most famed composers.
Born in Brighton, Melbourne in 1882, the man would go from inauspicious beginnings to become the darling of the classical music world, traversing concert halls in Europe and North America housing dignitaries and doyennes alike. Clearly, he had some staying power: 20,000 people rocked up to his wedding to Swedish poet and artist Ella Strom in 1926. We hope to bring some of that magic back to the Grainger Museum for one night only.
