Edward MacDowell
on: March 30, 2003, 10:08:09 AM
We haven't discussed about his music yet!
I listened to his two piano concertos and i think they are very nice.
He wrote quite alot of piano music.
They are very charming and effective.
So have any of you played any of his works or is playing some now?

MacDowell - yes - beautiful but underrated. He's one of those composers, along with Cecile Chaminade, Frank Bridge and John Ireland, whose piano pieces are quite unjustly regarded as period cameos of little substance. I agree, he's well worth studying.
