Cyril Scott is one of those versatile people who win distinction in more than one field ; he is a composer, poet and author. Bom in Cheshire in 1879, Scott studied under Knorr at Frankfort, where he had as fellow students Roger Quilter , Percy Grainger , and Norman O'Neill. On completion of his studies. he returned to England and lived for a time in Liverpool, earning a livelihood as a teacher and pianist.
Scott's first important orchestral work, Heroic Suite, was played at
Liverpool as well as Manchester, with ' Richter conducting, and not long afterwards his Pelleas and Melisande was given its first performance in Frankfort.
In his early days Scott was lookeJ upon by frowning professors ci harmony as one of the enfants terrible s of English music because of his use of certain dissonant chords—ethe ' English Debussy' someone christened him. But now, apart from his bigger works, he is known as a composer of many charming songs and piano pieces, which are as beautifully written as they are poetic in feeling.
In some ways less definite'
English than that of most of liis contemporaries, his music is very individual and modern, without any of the more startling effects of dissonance that so many contemporary composers favour.
