Percy Grainger was an 'all-round man' whose musical passions ranged from English folk songs through an eclectic array of composers, styles, influences and orchestrations. He graced the stage of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music as part of a two-year tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1935, leaving behind a harmonium that would languish beneath the main stage of the Vergrugghen Hall for over 70 years.
