Rubbra was an English composer, pianist, teacher and critic. "Best known for his 11 symphonies, these, together with his solid achievements in almost every other genre except opera and ballet, reveal a keen and imaginative mind, placing him in the front rank of 20th-century English composers." Ralph Scott Grover in Grove Music Online. Item #25411
