Influenced by jazz and the music of Stravinsky, he collaborated with Edith Sitwell on Façade (1923), a musical accompaniment to poems by Sitwell. Walton met Edith's brother Sacheverell at Oxford University (1918), after which the Sitwells provided him with patronage and encouragement. His later works, notably Belshazzar's Feast (1931), three concertos and two symphonies show the evolution of a personal style combining modernist features with traditional form.
