Arthur Bliss

Born: 1891

Died: 1975

Nationality: British

Publisher: Novello & Co

Bliss was an important voice in the England musical renaissance of the early twentieth century. A pupil of Stanford, much of his music embodies a specifically English, late-Romantic expression; however the influence of neo-classicism is heard in his early works, and his often colour-based style also shows the influence of Debussy. He was a prolific composer, wirting over 140 works in all genres, including film music (most notably his 1935 score to Things to Come), though it is perhaps in his ballet scores such as Checkmate and Adam Zero that Bliss's music is heard at its finest.
