Hill Return to List of Composers
Alfred Hill was born in Australia in 1869. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1960. Alfred Hill

The Australian composer Alfred Hill  (1869-1960) studied in Leipzig in the late 1880s, continuing, as a composer, the traditions in which he had been trained, but later with an Australian flavour, with occasional use of aboriginal melodies. He spent many of his early years in New Zealand, and he became one of the the most important composers and classical music figures in both Australia and New Zealand. His ten numbered symphonies, the last written in 1958, suggest the work of a latter-day Australian Dvorak.

Hill made some arrangements of traditional Australian folk songs, one of which is 'Click go the Shears'.  His Viola Concerto is a beautiful work in the romantic tradition.
