Article

John Herbert Foulds (1880–1939) was an English composer of classical music who found popularity with his light music and theatrical scores, but also created more experimental compositions that drew inspiration from Indian music, and explored the relationship between music, literature and painting. Furthermore, he was one of the first British composers to use quarter-tones (a pitch half way between the regular notes on the chromatic scale) in his compositions.
