Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Draper (23 October 1869, Odcombe, Somerset - 21 October 1952, Surbiton) was a British classical clarinetist, sometimes described as the grandfather of English clarinetists. He came from a musical family, his father and brother, having been cellists and clarinetists, respectively. In 1888, he studied with Henry Lazarus, and he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music where he continued as a student of Lazarus until the latter's retirement. He also studied for a year under Julian Egerton. He premiered Stanford's Clarinet Concerto in 1903 with the Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra. Stanford's Clarinet Sonata was also dedicated to Draper. Draper was also a notable teacher, teaching at the Royal College of Music, Trinity College of Music, and Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and counting Frederick Thurston among his students.show more
