Percy Aldridge Grainger (8 July 1882 – 20 February 1961) was an Australian-born composer, arranger and pianist. In the course of a long and innovative career he played a prominent role in the revival of interest in British folk music in the early years of the 20th century. He also made many adaptations of other composers' works. Although much of his work was experimental and unusual, the piece with which he is most generally associated is his piano arrangement of the folk-dance tune "Country Gardens".

Em 1912-13 é já um pianista brilhante e muito requisitado, toca várias obras do "Grupo de Frankfurt" do qual é membro. Sem dúvida encorajado pelo seu patrono Henry Balfour Gardiner, compõe "Os Guerreiros" entre 1913 e 1916, praticamente na mesma altura em que Gustav Holst compõe os seus Planetas (1914-17).Durante os anos precedentes à Grande Guerra, apresenta-se como concertista em vários países da Europa e nos Estados Unidos.
