Frederick Delius

Born in 1862 in Bradford of German parents who had moved to Yorkshire from Bielefeld to set up in the woollen business. Frederick was sent by his father to Florida as an orange-grower. But his musical interests lead to study at Leipzig Conservatory, followed by a move to Paris and then to Grez-sur-Loing with the painter Jelka Rosen, who later became his wife.  Frederick died in 1934.
