Division of Compositional Career in Five-Year Periods

This page shows how many works and pages Sorabji wrote in each five-year period from 1914 (the date of his first known work) to 1988 (the year of his death). The table shows numbers of works and pages in both number and proportion of total.

Sorabji began to turn his attention away from composition in 1962 and, from 1968 to 1972, produced no works until his meeting his Alistair Hinton. This explains the sharp drop from 1,142 in 1960-64 to 198 and 124 pages in the next two periods.
