Edward MacDowell (1860–1908) was America's most prominent nineteenth-century composer. Championed by Franz Liszt, he was one of the first U.S. composers to gain international recognition. A leading exponent of the Romantic tradition, he was a prolific composer for the Piano. This outstanding collection presents his best, most characteristic works, reprinted from original editions. They include:

  • Woodland Sketches, Op. 51
  • Sea Pieces, Op. 55
  • Fireside Tales, Op. 61
  • New England Idyls, Op. 62

These beautiful and affecting compositions reflect not only MacDowell's poetic Romanticism but also his virtuosic skills as a pianist, which won him an international reputation as a concert artist. Intermediate- and advanced-level pianists will appreciate the lyric intensity and ebullient spirit of these pieces.
