Arnold Bax (1883 - 1953)
Sir Arnold Edward Trevor Bax, KCVO (November 8, 1883 ? October 3, 1953), was an English composer and poet. His musical style blended elements of Romanticism and Impressionism, always with a strong Celtic influence. His orchestral scores are noted for their complexity and colorful instrumentation. Bax?s poetry and stories, which he wrote under the pseudonym of Dermoth O?Byrne, reflect his profound affinity with Irish poet William Butler Yeats, and are largely written in the tradition of the Irish Literary Revival.
