(b. Sydney, May 29, 1881 ; d. Beaucourt on the Ancre, France, Nov. 13, 1916), pianist and composer, was educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford (where he gained a musical scholarship, 1899), and later studied the piano under Knorr at Frankfort Kelly's musical influence among his contemporaries at Oxford was strong. He took his turn as president of the University Musical Club, and was active in promoting the Sunday evening concerts at Balliol. In connection with both, his fine taste and his admirable qualities as a pianist, particularly in concerted chamber music, made their mark. That he was also known as a first rate oarsman 1 naturally served to popularise the interests of his art among undergraduates. After his period of study abroad he was in London and acted as adviser to the Classical Conc ert S o cie ty (q.v.). His influence was exerted to direct that society's interests towards modem music and to combine it with the existing repertory of classical works, and he was largely responsible for the important place held by the society through several years. In 1911 he revisited Australia and gave some concerts at Sydney. He returned to London and gave an interesting series of chamber concerts in 1912. In 1914, on the outbreak of war, he joined the Royal Naval Division ; after distinguished service in Gallipoli he attained the rank of Lieutenant- Commander and was killed in action in France, Nov. 13, 1916. As a composer Kelly was chiefly known through some piano pieces which he had produced at his recitals, but a memorial concert of his compositions (Wigmore Hall, May 2, 1919) included an Elegy for small orchestra, written in Gallipoli (1915), in memory of his friend, Rupert Brooke, who had died there a few days before, a Serenade for flute solo and small orchestra (5 movements) and a number of songs. Other works are a sonata in G for violin and PF. played by Jelly D 'Aranyi and Leonard Borwick at a concert of the Classical Concert Society ; ' Monographs ' and ' Allegro de Concert ' for PF. ; Theme, Variations and Fugue for two pianofortes, c.
