Biographical notes:

Kaikhosru Sorabji (1892-1988) was an English composer and critic. Born Leon Dudley, he changed his name as a result of his interest in the Parsi (Zoroastrian) community. His compositions were unusual, sometimes employing as many as seven staves. He performed across Europe in the 1920s and 1930s but in 1940 announced a ban on all performances of his music without his express permission, though he continued to compose (he lifted the ban in 1976). He was also active as an essayist and critic.
