Rethinking Delius

The music of Frederick Delius (1862-1935) presents fascinating challenges of interpretation, documentation, performance, and analysis. In conjunction with their current AHRC award, ‘Delius, Modernism and the Sound of Place’, Professor Daniel Grimley and Dr Joanna Bullivant will lead a symposium on Delius’s music, focusing on new developments in Delius scholarship and future directions in research. 

The event is free of charge and will take place on Friday 15 July 2016 in the Foyle Visitor and Learning Centre at the British Library. Directions to the venue, which is located within the British Library Centre for Conservation, are available here

The symposium will also celebrate the launch of the online Delius Catalogue of Works, an interactive resource created in the course of the project. The catalogue draws heavily on the substantial collection of Delius' works held at the British Library.
