Hubert Clifford

1904 - 1959


Hubert Clifford came from Bairnsdale in East Gippsland. He studied chemistry at Melbourne University but after graduation went to England where he pursued a career in music.

Although Clifford possibly received his greatest recognition as a composer of 'light music' he also composed a number of major works in a serious but accessible style. One of these is Symphony 1940. He also worked as a musical director (conductor) on a number of films.
