This thesis explores Grainger’s ‘Delius Campaign’ between his arrival in New York in 1914 and Delius’s death in 1934, in which he promoted and performed the music of Delius across the USA. Through an examination of Grainger and Delius's friendship, the plans laid out for the campaign in their correspondence and an analysis of the critical reception of the resulting performances, this thesis questions the extent to which Grainger’s promotion of Delius affected the reception of his music in America.
