  Frederick Delius - LoveToKnow 1911   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
"FREDERICK DELIUS (1863-), English musical composer, born at Bradford, Yorks., Jan. 29 1863, was educated primarily at the International College, Isleworth, and was destined by his parents for a mercantile career.
To Delius the prospect thus held out was unendurable, though, rather paradoxically, when he declined the business career proffered to him in Bradford, he set out for Florida, where he established himself as an orange planter.
Besides all this Delius composed a violin concerto and a double concerto for violin and violoncello, a violin and a 'cello sonata, and a string quartet, many songs and several a capella choruses.

Fritz Theodor Albert Delius was born in Bradford, Yorkshire, England, on January 29, 1862.
The young romantic Delius was to absorb the unique natural beauty along the St. Johns River, as well as the rich harmonic vocal improvisations of the local fl slaves.
For the next 10 years or so, Delius lived in Paris, befriending many artists, writers, and musicians - indeed, this was another pivotal period in his life, in that so much of his output was to be influenced greatly by the literature and art to which he was exposed at this time.

 Frederick Delius: Devotion, Collaboration and the Salvation of Music by Emanuel E. Garcia, MD
Frederick Delius was born in Yorkshire in 1862, the fourth of 14 (yes, 14) children.
Being intimately acquainted with Delius’ music she sensed a shift in the internal feeling of Delius’ music, the inclusion of a certain profound sense of loss and longing, and she hypothesized that this was connected with Delius’ Florida love affair with Chloe, by whom he might very well have fathered a child.
Delius was nothing less than heroic in his own personal attempts to live as fully as possible with such an agonizing disease: he never recanted his fierce independence of dogma and when the opportunity to finish his life’s creative work presented itself, he rose magnificently to the occasion.

These performances of five works by Delius under Thomas Beecham, his friend and foremost champion, are incomparable for their authenticity and the beauty of their sound.

A short and enjoyable book about those years when Delius was in his 20s and 30s and he was the most passionate about life and art (perhaps TOO passionate!).
The most famous of the Delius books, written by his ammanuensis of his later years, when he was paralysed by advanced syphilis.
Much of the common perception of Delius as a misanthropic bitter old man comes from this book/movie, which is unfortunate I think, because he was a life-lover and befriender of many when he was not ill.

 Frederick Delius' HIAWATHA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Another early work showing Delius' attempt to recreate the strong impressions made on him by his American experiences is the tone poem HIAWATHA, after Longfellow's poem.
The last section is slow and somewhat languorous and comes to a close with a return of the "very strongly defined pentatonic melody" first heard on page 18, this time in the form of a canon with shimmering, tremolando strings.
It is frustrating that the work is now in an incomplete state for although, as Beecham says, Delius "was as yet only experimenting with that grand vehicle of sound, the full orchestra," it is a fascinating insight into the early development of his style.
