The British composer Elizabeth Maconchy (1907-1994) was a highly versatile and popular composer. She studied at the Royal College of Music with Ralph Vaughan Williams, but continental European modernism proved to be a greater influence on her music; she admired both Bartok and Janacek. After the Second World War, she was much in demand, writing for many professional soloists and ensembles, amateurs and students.
