Gerald Finzi (1901-1956) was born of Jewish/German parents although he is remembered as a quintessentially ‘English’ composer influenced by folk music. However, he also held a passion for masters of the German and English Baroque music, particularly JS Bach and William Boyce. The ‘mourning’ of Haydn’s dramatic Symphony No.44 is in memory of his death in September 1956.
