Granville Ransome Bantock was born in Westbourne Park, London, on August 7th, 1868. He was intended by his parents (his father was a Scottish doctor) for the Indian Civil Service, but was instead drawn into the world of music. He studied at Trinity College of Music, and later at the Royal Academy of Music, where he won the Macfarren Award the first year it was presented. In addition to his career as a composer he also was active as a conductor and pioneered the works of significant numbers of other composers. Granville Bantock died in London, on October 16th, 1946. Shortly after his death, the Bantock Society was established in London. Its first President was Jean Sibelius, whose work Bantock had championed during the earlier years of the century, and who had dedicated his Third Symphony to Bantock.
