Percy Grainger was one of the musical geniuses of the 20th century: a brilliant composer, a concert pianist of international renown, one of the first serious collectors of folk music, an innovator, inventor and visionary. The piano lay at the heart of his musical life, and this collection reveals his absolute mastery of the instrument and its infinite palette of colours and textures.

Pianist Leslie Howard brings his own genius to the music of Grainger in this 5CD collection of piano masterpieces, from popular favourites such as Country Gardens, Shepherd's Hey, Molly on the Shore and Handel in the Strand, to the groundbreaking 'Imaginary Ballet' score The Warriors, performed here with Geoffrey Parsons and David Stanhope in Grainger's own arrangement for three pianists on two pianos.
