The legacy of Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji (1892–1988) is vast. Composer, pianist and critic, Sorabji was born in 1892 in England, his father a Parsi engineer from Bombay and his mother apparently a soprano, was once thought to be Spanish-Sicilian but it has been discovered that she was English.
Sorabji was an enormously prolific composer, who completed over 100 works between 1915 and 1984, many for piano solo, some of enormous dimensions. Some were published between 1919 and 1931, but much of his music remains for the time being in manuscript only.
