PREFACE 

THE object of this book is to give as complete 
a record as possible of the beginning and 
progress of music in the United States of America. 

The first things recorded are regarded as im- 
portant. Hence such items as the printing of the 
first book on music, the importation of the first 
pipe organs, the establishment of the early musical 
societies are recorded, while similar events of a more 
recent date are of no special importance. 

The first performance of significant works 
operas, oratorios, symphonies and other choral and 
orchestral works are chronicled as carefully as 
possible j also the first appearance in America of 
noted musicians. 

It has been practically impossible to find accurate 
data about the works of the older composers, 
Haydn, Mozart and others, for while there are 
many programs in which their names are mentioned 
the work played is seldom specified (see Mr. O. G. 
Sonneck's "Early Concert-Life in America"), and 
one must wait until the period arrives in which the 
work performed is specified. Probably some of the 
works mentioned had earlier performances by small 
organizations but the performances recorded here 
are in all probability the first adequate ones. 



vi PREFACE 

Among the items recorded are some which cannot 
be regarded as marking the musical progress of the 
country, and yet are items of musical interest j 
the first performance of " The Star-Spangled 
Banner " and of " America " do not mark any 
progress and yet are historic events. 

The establishment of Gilmore's Band and Sousa's 
Band are items of interest rather than of educational 
progress. 

In compiling this work such newspapers as are 
available have been consulted, also the programs of 
the leading choral and orchestral societies. Valu- 
able help has been gained from the excellent works 
of Mr. Oscar G. Sonneck, Mr. E. H. Krehbiel, Mr. 
Philip Goepp, Mr. George P. Upton, Allston 
Brown and other writers on the American stage, and 
above all from the admirable notes of Mr. Philip 
Hale in the programs of the Boston Symphony 
Orchestra. It would be ungracious to close this pref- 
ace without acknowledging with gratitude the valu- 
able assistance of Miss Barbara Duncan of the 
Boston Public Library.

CHAPTER I 
1640- 1750 

THE Annals of Music in America during the 
first hundred years contain very little that 
would seem to be of any importance to the musi- 
cians of today. Nevertheless it is as interesting to 
note the beginnings of music in this newly settled 
country as to watch the appearance of the baby's first 
tooth. 

The first settlement at Plymouth took place in 
1620, and we find that in 1640 the colonists were 
already busy with the printing press in Cambridge, 
Mass., and the second book which came from the 
press was a reprint of an English Psalm book, printed 
under the title of the Bay Psalm Book. This was 
not an original work, but its production shows that 
music was already a living problem, and was even 
then part of the life of the colonists. 

Practically nothing more of note happened until 
the importation of the first pipe organ, in 1700. 
This was quickly followed by other similar instru- 
ments in different parts of the country, and even by 



2 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

the building of organs by Americans, the first being 
by John Clemm in New York, which contained three 
manuals and twenty-six stops, and the next by Ed- 
ward Bromfield in Boston. Bromfield's organ had 
two manuals and 1200 pipes, but was not com- 
pleted when he died in 1746. 

The early history of music in New England, as 
handed down to us by writers on the subject, seems 
to have consisted chiefly of church singing, con- 
cerning which there were many controversies. The 
early composers of New England were mainly occu- 
pied in composing psalm tunes, and in teaching sing- 
ing schools. 

The accounts of secular music come chiefly from 
Charleston, S. C., at which place many musicians 
entered this continent after visiting the West Indies. 
In fact, the first song recital on record in America 
took place at Charleston in 1733, while Boston had 
a concert in 1731 and Charleston had one in 1732. 
Charleston also claims the first performance of bal- 
lad opera on record in America (1735). 

It must not, however, be supposed that New Eng- 
land had no secular music. The concert above men- 
tioned goes to show the contrary. Also there is a 
record of small wind instruments, such as oboes and 
flageolets, being brought to Boston for the purposes 
of trade possibly with the idea that New Eng- 
land shepherds might play to their sheep, as shep- 
herds in other countries are supposed to do. 

We know that every farm had its spinning wheel 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 3 

and that clothes were made of the homespun wool- 
lens, but neither historian nor poet has ever pictured 
a New England shepherd with the shepherd's pipe. 
Imagination has not so far run riot. 

Music was in a very elementary stage during the 
first hundred years. The country was sparsely pop- 
ulated, and music depends on the existence of a 
community. Even in 1750 the cows, according to 
tradition, were still occupied, during their daily 
peregrinations, in laying out the streets of the fu- 
ture city of Boston, a city which was destined to 
be one of the leaders in matters musical. 

NOTE. When a work is mentioned as " given " or " -played " 
or " -presented" it means the first performance in America. 
When " produced " or " production " or " premiere " is 
used the first -public -performance anywhere is indicated. 

1640. The "Bay Psalm Book" published, first American book 

of sacred music. The second book printed in America. 
1700. The first pipe organ to reach America from Europe 

was placed in the Episcopal Church at Port Royal, Va. 

About 1860 it was removed to Hancock, and later to Shep- 

herdstown, W. Va. 

1712. First practical instruction book on singing in New 
England, published by John Tufts of Newbury, Mass. 

1713. First pipe organ brought into New England presented 
to King's Chapel, Boston, by Thomas Brattle. (Now in

and French horns) were played for the first time in the 
Moravian Church, Bethlehem, Pa.

CHAPTER II 

1750- 1800 

. 
^ I ^HE first item of especial interest in this period 

X is the performance of the " Beggar's Opera " 
at the " Theatre in Nassau Street," New York. This 
theatre was a rather tumbledown affair and was nof' 
built for the purpose. It had a platform and rough 
benches. The chandelier was a barrel hoop through 
which several nails were driven, and on these nails 
were impaled candles, which provided all the light, 
and from which the tallow was likely to drip on the 
heads of such of the audience as had the best seats. 

But three years later (in 1753) Lewis Hallam, 
who had been giving performances with his company 
in the more southern States, got permission to build 
a theatre on the site of this old place, and the house 
was opened in September with a play, " The 
Conscious Lovers," followed by a ballad farce, 
" Damon and Phillida." 

In 1759 we find the first avowedly musical organ- 
ization in America, " The Orpheus Club," was in 
existence in Philadelphia, and concerts were becom- 
ing more frequent. We also find a St. Cecilia 
Society founded in Charleston, S. C, an organization 
which lasted for a hundred and fifty years. 

s 



6 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

Other societies followed at short intervals and 
in widely scattered localities j the " Handel Society " 
of Dartmouth College, about 1780, the " Stoughton 
(Mass.) Musical Society," 1786, and "The Musi- 
cal Society " of New York City, all tend to show that 
social centres were developing, and the people were 
finding expression in music. 

An indication of what had been growing by de- 
grees is found in the reports of concerts. Mention 
of instruments such as violins, French horns, oboes, 
trombones, etc., was made here and there, and espe- 
cially in connection with the Moravian settlements 
in Bethlehem, Pa., where was established the first 
music school. 

We find the first mention of an orchestra made in 
connection with a performance of " The Beggar's 
Opera" at Upper Marlboro, Md., in 1752, and a 
few years later (1788) a great concert was given in 
Philadelphia with an orchestra of fifty and a chorus 
of two hundred performers. 

There is also a record of a concert given in 
Charleston, S. C, in 1796, when an orchestra of 
thirty instruments was employed in a performance 
of Gluck's overture to " Iphegenie en Aulide," and 
Haydn's " Stabat Mater." 

It is quite possible that orchestras were used more 
or less in other concerts. Mr. Sonneck shows, in his 
" Early Concert-Life in America," many programs 
in which orchestral works are mentioned. And it is 
well to state here that it is almost impossible to 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 7 

locate the first performance in America of many of 
the tworks of the older composers, including Haydn 
and Mozart, because no opus number is mentioned, 
nor anything to indicate the identity of the work. 
Pleyel, Gluck and Clementi were much in vogue. 

The American composer was beginning to be 
heard from during this period. Francis Hopkinson, 
who is generally regarded as the first American 
composer, wrote, in 1759, a song with the title " My 
Days Have Been So Wondrous Free." Some time 
later, in 1788, a small volume of songs was pub- 
lished under the title " Seven Songs," by the same 
composer. 

Francis Hopkinson was a well-educated man, a 
signer of the Declaration of Independence, a mem- 
ber of the Convention of 1787 which formulated 
the Constitution of the United States, first Judge 
of the Admiralty Court in Pennsylvania, and author 
of many pamphlets and poems. 

A man of entirely different calibre was William 
Billings, who was considered the first composer in 
New England. His compositions were chiefly 
" f uguing tunes," and he published several psalm 
books. 

Billings was a tanner by trade, but a great musical 
enthusiast and organizer. The Stoughton (Mass.) 
Musical Society, which is the oldest musical society 
still in existence, was organized by Billings. Lack 
of education was no bar to his activities, and he 
accomplished much with very limited means. 



g ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

It is said that Billings introduced the bass viol 
into the services of the Church, and thus began to 
break down the ancient Puritanical prejudices 
against musical instruments. He was also the first 
to use the pitch-pipe in order to ensure some degree 
of certainty in " striking up the tune " in church. 

Again, we find the first American ballad operas 
during this period. Benjamin Carr, an Englishman 
who had been in America a couple of years, pro- 
duced in 1796 a ballad opera, "The Archers of 
Switzerland," and, shortly afterwards, in the same 
year, with Pellesier (a Frenchman of recent arrival) 
as librettist, another ballad opera, " Edwin and 
Angelina," was staged in New York City. Though 
these works could hardly be called distinctively 
American, they were the first composed and pro- 
duced in this country. 

During the last decade of the i8th century some 
French actors and singed invaded the country and 
made New Orleans their headquarters. From 
that time on, for many years, New Orleans was 
prominent in the production of French operas and 
plays. 

Theatres were built in several of the larger cities, 
and noted singers began to appear from abroad. 
The first of these appears to have been Miss Broad- 
hurst, who appeared in Philadelphia in 1793, at the 
Chestnut Street Theatre. She was closely followed 
by Mrs. Oldmixon.

CHAPTER III 

1800- 1825 

IN 1 800 we find the first mention of the use of the 
bassoon. This was in Bethlehem, Pa., and it 
seems to complete the list of instruments for the 
average orchestra. Notwithstanding the record of 
the importation of oboes, many years earlier, and 
the fact that Graupner, one of the leading musicians 
in Boston about this time, was, or had been an oboeist, 
some historian has stated that even well into the 
nineteenth century there was only one oboe player 
in the United States, and he lived in Baltimore. 
Surely this must be an error. 

In December 1800 we find the first annual con-" 
cert of the Philharmonic Society in New York City. 
This society died in a few years, and in 1820 another 
Philharmonic Society was formed. This society 
also dwindled, though it did not die, for in 1840 
it was reorganized, and has ever since taken a lead- 
ing part in the musical life of New York. 

Many musical societies made a beginning. Few 
lived long. But of those which lived perhaps the 
most noted is the Handel and Haydn Society of 
Boston, formed in 1815. This society gave what 
was claimed to be the first complete performance 

14 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 15 

of Handel's " Messiah," but it is also claimed that 
this was done in 1801 in the hall of the University 
of Pennsylvania. 

The Handel and Haydn Society also gave what 
was called the first complete performance of 
Haydn's " Creation," an honor which is also ascribed 
to King's Chapel in 1816, while portions had been 
performed in 1811 at Bethlehem, Pa. Thus it is 
difficult to fix definitely the first performances of 
many of the large works. In later days, especially 
in the case of Wagner's operas, portions were given 
at concerts long before complete stage performances 
were essayed. 

Another musical society which is in existence at 
the present day, and which undoubtedly has had 
much influence on the musical life of America, was 
the Pierian Sodality of Harvard University, estab- 
lished in 1808 by the undergraduates. 

In Philadelphia we find the establishment of the 
Musical Fund Society, which, for a number of years, 
did much to promote good music in that city. At its 
first concert, on April 24, 1821, Beethoven's First 
Symphony was played for the first time in America. 
Mr. Goepp gives us a full account of this and tells 
us that the whole symphony was too severe a task 
for an audience of that period, so the performance 
was broken and diversified by vocal and other solos 
between the movements. 

New England possessed several musical societies 
in 1821, by which performances of oratorio were 



1 6 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

given. The Sacred Music Society was formed in 
New York City in 1823 and lasted till 1849. So 
it may easily be seen that, as the population in- 
creased, musical societies were soon established. 

Theatres, while not strictly part of the musical 
life of the country, can hardly be separated from it 
because they were the home of ballad operas, and all 
musical stage representations. They were already in 
existence in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia be- 
fore the beginning of the nineteenth century, but 
we find in 1 807, the opening of " Le Theatre St 
Philippe " in New Orleans with Mehul's one-act 
opera, " Une Folie." This theatre being burned in 
1817, a new one, " Le Theatre d'Orleans," was 
built and opened in the following year. This 
theatre was the finest in the country at that time 
and was the home of opera for a number of years. 
The record of opera in New Orleans is incomplete, 
but it is well known that New Orleans was the home 
of French opera in America long before it became 
popular in other parts of the country. 
"^ But America was gradually edging up to the time 1 
of grand opera. Singers were arriving from abroad ' 
and brought with them their ambitions. We find 
that an English version of Rossini's opera, " II 
Barbiere," was given at the Park Theatre, New York 
City, in 1819, with Miss Leesugg as Rosina, and in 
1823 an English version of Mozart's " Le Nozze 
di Figaro " was presented. Again in the early part 
of 1825, Weber's opera " De*r Freyschiitz " was pre- 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 17 

seated, in English, at the Park Theatre, with Miss 
Kelly and Mrs. de Luce in the leading parts. Similar 
performances followed in other cities, and the coun- 
try was thus gradually prepared for the real thing, 
grand opera, in its native language. 

While the record of items during the period 1 800 
to 1825 is not very long it still shows considerable 
progress. The people grew up in a country where 
there was little musical cultivation, where there were 
small communities, and where the struggle for exist- 
ence had been the first consideration. They re- 
sponded warmly to the efforts of the country singing 
teacher, the choral society promoter, and later to the 
producer of opera, and if history shows many 
failures, it may be pointed out that these failures 
could not have taken place if no effort had been 
made. Perhaps efforts in many cases were prema- 
ture. Also there was much to learn in the manage- 
ment of masses of people. The virtues of a true 
democracy are nowhere more necessary than in a 
choral society.

CHAPTER IV 

1825 - 1850 

DURING these twenty-five years the list of 
items on record is far greater than during any 
preceding period of similar time. Possibly this may 
be accounted for by the greater facilities for travel 
both by sea and land. Railroads were gradually 
spreading out through the country, and helping to 
develop distant trading stations into towns and cities. 
Steamships were making the voyage from Europe a 
more feasible adventure. We shall see this as we 
proceed. 

In what we may call the domestic side of music we 
find the establishment of more singing societies in 
all the eastern cities. There was practically no 
"west" in 1825, but Chicago shows up in 1834 
with " The Old Settlers' Harmonic Society." The 
story of Chicago's early musical days may be read 
in Mr. George P. Upton's book of reminiscences. 
The remarkable part of it seems to be that Chicago 
grew phenomenally, and today stands as a rival to 
New York in all matters musical, although in 1825 
Chicago was merely a trading post and New York 
was already a city of some size. 

The musical convention came into being. The 

20 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 21 

first is said to have been held at Concord, N. H., in 
September 1829. There is also a claim that the first 
musical convention was held in Montpelier, Vt, in 
1839 but this is not quite correct. It may have been 
the first convention in Vermont. Musical conven- 
tions became popular and frequent and are so even 
to the present day, though the methods and matter 
have changed with the times. 

Another item which may come under the head of 
domestic music is the beginning of music teaching in 
the public schools. This was effected by Lowell 
Mason, as an experiment, in 1838. At the present 
day chorus singing in the public schools has become 
an important matter, and is almost universal. 

In 1838 we find a Philharmonic Society in St. 
Louis, showing that St. Louis was not far behind 
Chicago in getting into the musical world. 

In Boston an Academy of Music was established 
by Lowell Mason in 1833. It had a large number 
of pupils, and there was an orchestra in connection 
with it, which gave several concerts. But the 
Harvard Musical Association, which was founded 
in 1837, seems to have been the chief propelling 
.power to orchestral music in Boston, until the for- 
mation of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In 
New York the Philharmonic Society was reorgan- 
ized and was, as it has been ever since, the most 
prominent orchestral organization of that city. 

In 1848 two complete orchestras came to America^ 
GungPs, which gave a number of concerts, chiefly 



22 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

of light music, and the Germania, which consisted 
of a number of refugees from the German govern- 
ment. These men gave concerts of a finer, type 
than had yet been given in America. Their career 
as an organization was not long, and it ended in 
disaster, but many of the members became prom- 
inent in musical matters in various cities, and in this 
way the Germania orchestra had a beneficial and 
lasting effect upon music in this country. 

In the forties began the stream of violin and piano 
virtuosi which has continued in ever-increasing 
volume to the present day. Ole Bull, violinist, in 
1843, Vieuxtemps and Artot, violinists, and Leo- 
pold von Meyer, pianist, in 1844, were the first. 

Perhaps the development of opera may be con- 
sidered of greater interest than other musical items. 
In 1825 Manuel Garcia arrived in New York, and 
gave the first performances of Italian opera. In 
his company were his daughter Maria, who married 
one Malibran and remained in New York for about 
two years. At the end of this time she left her 
husband and returned to Europe, where she had a 
short but very brilliant career. Young Garcia, the 
son, who also sang, afterwards became one of the 
greatest singing teachers in Europe, and invented 
the laryngoscope. Pauline, who became Madame 
Viardot, and lived to a great age, was too young to 
participate in Garcia's performances in New York. 
For many years she was one of the great singing 
teachers in Paris. 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 23 

Garcia did not stay very long in New York, but 
he began the efforts to present Italian opera, which 
were continued by many others from time to time, 
usually with disaster. Nevertheless, the history of 
the period from 1825 to 1850 is full of first per- 
formances of Italian opera. In 1848 the Havana 
Company visited the United States, and was con- 
sidered the finest company that had been heard until 
that time. 

In the same year Max Maretzek appeared in New 
York and at once entered the operatic field, with 
which he was prominently occupied during the next 
period. 

Before finishing the review of this period we must 
not forget the production William Henry Fry's 
opera, " Leonora." This was the first grand opera 
written and produced by an American. It had 
several representations, but does not seem to have 
lived long. The same, however, may be said of 
many of the Italian operas which were presented 
during this and later periods. A careful perusal of 
the list will show the names of operas long since 
defunct, so far as the American public is concerned. 
Yet there are many, which were first presented to 
the American public in this period, and which are 
as popular today as ever, in fact no good opera 
company can afford to be without them. Opera was 
well started by 1850.

CHAPTER V 

1850- 1875 

DURING this period musical events moved for- 
ward quite rapidly, and though there was a 
pause during the years of the Civil War from 
1 86 1 to 1865 after that time increasing energy 
was in evidence. 

Possibly one of the most significant events was 
the establishment of " Dwight's Journal of Music," 
in Boston, the first journal in America devoted 
entirely to musical matters. It was published every 
two weeks, and while the greater part of the space 
was devoted to musical affairs in Europe, yet there 
were letters and reports from various centres in this 
country, which make the Journal something of a 
history in itself. Moreover, John S. Dwight helped 
very materially in bringing to the American people 
something in the way of musical criticism, which was 
sadly needed. Indeed, anyone who takes the trouble 
to look over the reports of concerts and operas in 
the daily papers of these times will be surprised 
at the absurdity of the comments on the perform- 
ances of the noted musicians. Ritter, for instance, 
quotes a criticism of a pianoforte recital where the 
critic was much pleased by a " double run on the 

36 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 37 

chromatic scale, in which the semitones were dis- 
tinctly heard." With singers the chief point was 
whether the singer of this season could sing louder 
than the singer of last season. John S. Dwight was 
the pioneer of musical criticism in America, an 
intellectual man, one of the noted band of idealists 
who were in the " Brook Farm " movement. 
" Dwight's Journal of Music " went out of exist- 
ence in 1 88 1. Musical criticism has since become a 
specialized art. 

Musical societies were multiplying, Cincinnati 
and Milwaukee had them, and in Chicago the 
"Philharmonic Society" was organized. In 1850 
also the Worcester (Mass.) " Festivals " began, and 
in 1858 the Peabody Institute concerts, in Baltimore. 

In 1858 the "Mendelssohn Quintet" was 
formed, and for many years toured the country 
giving concerts of a high standard, and doing much 
to raise the level of musical taste. This organization 
had its beginning in Boston, but it traveled so widely 
that it may be said to have belonged to the nation. 

Towards the end of this period the " Apollo 
Club " was organized in Chicago, and it is today 
one of the most excellent clubs in America. The 
following year the " Cecilia Society," in Boston, was 
organized and likewise still exists and flourishes. 
But these are only a few. 

The American composer was beginning to show 
himself perhaps not yet very brilliantly in com- 
parison to the great men of Europe but he was 



38 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

beginning to be heard from. William H. Frye, 
besides his two operas, composed several symphonies, 
which were played by Jullien's Band in 1853. Also 
a " Grand Symphony "in 1855 an< ^ " The Pilgrims' 
Cantata " by C. C. Perkins, were performed in 
Boston, and we have record of an oratorio, " The 
Cities of the Plains," by Dawley, in 1855. Apart 
from these efforts the American composer seems to 
have been inconspicuous. In fact there were no 
facilities for the study of music or for the hearing 
of music which could be compared, as a training 
school for composers, with the musical centres of 
Europe, so that the efforts of these earlier composers 
may be considered, in some respects, premature, 
and prompted by energy and ambition rather than 
by scientific preparation. 

The story of grand opera of this period is one of 
perpetual striving for the unattainable. In Chicago 
the first performance of grand opera was given in 
1850. Chicago is now a rival of New York in 
matters of opera. 

San Francisco heard its first opera in 1853. The 
gold fever of 1849 drew people of all kinds to 
California, and among them were musicians. Henri 
Herz, the French pianist, reached California in 1 849 
when the excitement was at its highest, and he gives 
an interesting account of his adventures. It may 
also be well to mention here Signora Biscaccianti, 
who went to San Francisco in 1852, and was there 
more or less till 1864. Signora Biscaccianti was one 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 39 

of the first American singers to achieve a measure 
of success in Europe. She was the daughter of a 
musician named Ostinelli, was born in Boston, where 
she met with some success as a singer, went to New 
York and thence to Europe. Another American 
who was, perhaps, better known in her own country 
was Miss Isabella Hinkley who appeared in 1861, 
but another who appeared in New York in the same 
year, became still better known and was prominent 
for many years, Clara Louise Kellogg. Eighteen 
hundred and fifty-nine was the year of Adelina 
Patti's debut. 

The list of great singers who were imported 
during this period is long. We can but touch on it, 
there was Jenny Lind in 1850, then came 
Marietta Alboni in 1851. Two years later Sontag, 
and the next year Grisi and Mario. In 1865 came 
Parepa Rosa, and in 1870 Christine Nilsson. In 
1873, Maurel and Campanini. In 1855 Brignoli 
appeared, and was for many years a great popular 
favorite. 

We find efforts in New York to promote German 
opera. Operas by Germans " Fidelio " for in- 
stance had been heard together with operas by 
Italians, and others, but now Wagner came above the 
horizon, and German opera began to mean Wagner. 
So we find " Tannhauser " and " Lohengrin " in 
New York in 1859, quite inadequate perform- 
ances according to the opinion handed down to pos- 
terity, but yet, performances. They were fol- 



40 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

lowed in 1862 by " Der Fliegende Hollander," all 
worthy but inadequate efforts. Maretzek and Stra- 
kosch were the chief figures in grand opera during 
this period, but there were spasmodic efforts by 
others which need not be recorded. 

Pianists were not so numerous as later. Alfred 
Jaell had apppeared and, in 1854, Dr. William 
Mason returned from Europe and established him- 
self in New York, but was not known as one of the 
traveling virtuosi. He had a great influence in 
musical education, for many years. Anna Mehlig 
visited America in 1869. 

In 1862 Louis M. Gottschalk, a native of New 
Orleans, returned to America after a brilliant 
career in Europe, and he appears to have been the 
first American to have made a career as a piano 
virtuoso. 

Violinists were few in comparison to singers, 
Miska Hauser, Pablo Sarasate, in 1850, and Camilla 
Urso in 1852. Then a space of twenty years with- 
out any great virtuoso. 

An important matter in the musical life of 
America was the establishment of conservatories. 
There had already been the Academy of Music in 
Boston, which enrolled twenty-two hundred pupils 
the first year, but the conservatory idea appears to 
have developed just after the Civil War, for we 
find in 1865 a conservatory of music established with 
Oberlin College, in 1871 Illinois College at Jack- 
sonville followed suit, and in 1873 Northwestern 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 41 

University. In the meantime, in 1867, we find the 
Boston Conservatory, under Julius Eichberg, the 
New England Conservatory, under Eben Tourjee, 
the Cincinnati Conservatory, and the Chicago Acad- 
emy of Music, which became the Chicago Musical 
College, and in 1877, a couple of years after this 
period, Syracuse University added a conservatory.

CHAPTER VI 

1875- 1890 

period of fifteen years from 1875 to 1890 
_JL_ was most certainly a period of progress. Not 
only was the country growing rapidly in population 
and wealth, but means of communication were much 
greater and more efficient than in the preceding 
years. The present writer well remembers a journey 
from San Francisco to St. Louis, and on to Boston 
in 1878, when there was one single track railroad 
between Oakland and Omaha. Cheyenne consisted 
of two rows of primitive looking wooden houses, 
behind which were " anchored " many emigrants' 
wagons, or " prairie schooners " as they were called. 
Only a few years later (in the early eighties) 
Colonel Mapleson visited Cheyenne with his opera 
company, which included Patti and Gerster, and 
wrote thus of the place : " Although Cheyenne is 
but a little town, consisting of about two streets, it 
possesses a most refined society, composed, it is true, 
of cow-boys j yet one might have imagined oneself 
at the London Opera when the curtain rose, the 
ladies in brilliant toilettes and covered with dia- 
monds ; the gentlemen all in evening dress. The 
entire little town is lighted by electricity. The club- 

6 4 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 65 

house is one of the pleasantest I have ever visited, 
and the people are most hospitable." 

This account reminds the writer of a visit, not so 
many years ago, to Oklahoma City where the ladies 
resembled those of Cheyenne. There was, however, 
but one gentleman, within the writer's range of 
vision, in evening dress. And when Mapleson 
visited Cheyenne Oklahoma was an Indian reserva- 
tion. Thus has civilization advanced. 

In 1875 San Francisco was already a good-sized 
city, but almost the whole country between San 
Francisco and Chicago and St. Louis has been de- 
veloped since 1875. 

In San Francisco we find the establishment of the 
"Loring Club" in 1877. But good music was 
getting its roots in deeper in the East. In New York 
the " Symphony Society " was founded by Dr. Leo- 
pold Damrosch in 1878, and was followed in 1881 
by the " Boston Symphony Orchestra," which was 
established through the liberality of Major Henry L. 
Higginson. 

" The Music Teachers' National Association " was 
also formed in 1876, and while it is not in the public 
eye in the way that opera and concerts are, yet its 
influence throughout the land has been very marked, 
and has led to state associations, with their annual 
conferences, and exchanges of views among teachers. 

In the concert world we find the names of several 
celebrities, Rubinstein had visited America in 
1872, and Hans von Bulow in 1875, Moritz Rosen- 



66 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

thai m 1888, and Godowski in 1890. We find also 
among the noted pianists who were first known here 
in this period Arabella Goddard, Rafael Joseffy, 
Fanny Bloomfield-Zeisler and Josef Hofmann. 

Some noted violinists also visited America, August 
Wilhelmj in 1878, Ovide Musin, Teresina Tua, and 
in 1888 Fritz Kreisler. But perhaps the most note- 
worthy event was the appearance of Maud Powell, 
an American woman, whose career placed her in the 
front rank of violinists, and has but recently ended 
with her death. 

Of singers there were a great many, but most of 
them appeared in opera. Of the Americans who 
gained international reputation were Emma Abbott, 
Alwina Valleria (of Baltimore), Lillian Nordica 
(Norton), Emma Nevada (Wixom), and Charles R. 
Adams. 

Among the European celebrities who visited 
America were Madame Rudersdorff, Etelka Gerster, 
Scalchi, Marcella Sembrich, Amalia Materna, and 
Lilli Lehmann, also Alberto Stagno, Max Alvary, 
Albert Niemann, Francesco Tamagno. 

This leads us to a short review of opera, and as 
New York City was the headquarters from which 
numerous companies issued to charm the rest of the 
country, a review of New York is practically a re- 
view of opera for the whole country. 

From 1850 to 1875 opera is said to have "flour- 
ished on failure " chiefly under Maretzek and Stra- 
kosch. Also, opera meant Italian opera, or at least 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 67 

opera in Italian. There were spasmodic efforts to 
promote German opera, chiefly by Adolf Neuen- 
dorff, who managed the German Theatre in New 
York City from 1872 to 1883. In 1876 a Wagner 
Festival was given in New York, and in 1878 
there was a short and unsuccessful season given by 
the Pappenheim Opera Company, during which 
" Rienzi " was sung for the first time in America. 
Theodore Thomas did much to prepare the way by 
playing excerpts from the Wagner operas at his 
concerts, but Dr. Leopold Damrosch in 1884 set on 
foot a movement which, during the next few years, 
brought to America several of the greatest German 
singers, and gave to the public adequate representa- 
tions of many of the Wagnerian operas. Dr. 
Damrosch died in 1885 an< ^ n ^ s wor k was taken up 
by Anton Seidl, who had been associated with 
Wagner in the production of the " Ring " at Bey- 
reuth. Under Seidl " Die Meistersinger " had its 
first performance in America, in i886j " Tristan und 
Isolde" and "Siegfried" in 1887; "Die Gotter- 
dammerung," in 1888, and "Das Rheingold " in 
1889. Thus German opera was well launched in 
this period. 

To return to Italian opera, Colonel Mapleson 
invaded the United States in 1878 bringing with 
him a good company of singers. He did not go 
farther west than St. Louis. Several tours followed 
in succeeding years. During his third tour he gave 
the first performance in America of Boito's " Me- 



68 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

fistofele," with Campanini, Valleria, Gary and 
Novara. About this time he found a strong com- 
petitor in Henry E. Abbey, who secured Nilsson 
as a counter-attraction to Patti who was under Maple- 
son. This competition caused Mapleson to proceed 
farther west, so he led his company as far as San 
Francisco, where he appears to have taken the town 
by storm, and, if his account is correct, the march in 
" Aida " was performed by six hundred of the State 
militia and he had the assistance of a military band 
and an extra chorus of three hundred and fifty voices. 
But Mapleson's enterprises were beset with diffi- 
culties and finally ended in disaster, although not 
for some years. To many people, who can remem- 
ber the rivalry between Abbey and Mapleson in the 
eighties, when Patti, Gerster, Sembrich, Scalchi, 
Nilsson, Annie Louise Gary, Campanini, Ravelli and 
del Puente were in their prime, these were the days 
of Italian opera in America. Probably much was 
lacking in the staging and scenery, but the singers 
have been unsurpassed. 

Before closing the review of this period we come 
to that which is of immense importance in the de- 
velopment of music in America, viz. the appearance 
of a number of composers who have taken high rank 
among the composers of the world j John K. 
Paine, whose first symphony was produced in 1875, 
was followed shortly by Arthur Bird, George W. 
Chadwick, Horatio Parker, Harry Rowe Shelley, 
Dudley Buck and Edward A. MacDowell.

CHAPTER VII 

1890 1900 

^ I ^HE decade covered in this chapter was remark- 
JL able for progress in many directions. 

Large orchestras were established all over the 
country Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, San Francisco, 
Los Angeles, widely scattered cities, were among 
those which made serious efforts in the orchestral 
line, and performed large orchestral works. 

America became in a still greater degree the hunt- 
ing ground of the musical star who came from 
Europe, and swept the country of its loose dollars, 
appearing both as soloist with these orchestras, and 
giving recitals in the various cities. 

Among pianists we had Busoni, who was, for a 
time, resident in Boston, Vladimir de Pachmann, the 
great interpreter of Chopin, who was immensely 
popular for some twenty-five years, and Paderewski, 
whose progress through the country was marked by 
previously unheard of demonstrations. It is said 
that thousands of people traveled many miles to 
see the train pass in which he was traveling. Alfred 
Reisenauer came in 1895, Slivinski, Alberto Jonas, 
Raoul Pugno, Siloti and Dohnanyi, were among 
those who made their first appearances in America 
during this decade.

There was also a large list of violin virtuosi begin- 
ning with Adolf Brodsky, who was followed by 
Henri Marteau, Cesar Thomson, Ondriczek, Bur- 
mester, Halir, Gregorovitch, Marsick, Maud Mac- 
Carthy, Petschnikof and Madame Normann Neruda, 
who had been prominent in England for many years, 
and was long past her prime when she visited 
America. But the greatest artist of all was Eugen 
Ysaye, who first appeared in 1894, and who, since 
the great war, has been conductor of the Cincinnati 
Orchestra. 

Opera continued to flourish on misfortune. 
Henry Abbey, who had ruined himself in driving 
out Mapleson, formed a partnership with John B. 
Schoeffel and Maurice Grau, and for some years 
provided opera for the country. Signer Luigi Arditi, 
who first appared as conductor of the Havana Com- 
pany in about 1848, and had seen more operatic 
service in America than any other conductor, made a 
brief but interesting estimate of the impresarios 
under whom he had traveled during those years. " I 
have come to the conclusion," he writes, " that Don 
Francesco Marty (of the Havana Company) was 
the most generous of men, and Max Maretzek the 
cleverest. Colonel Mapleson was decidedly the 
astutest of all directors, . . . while to Henry Abbey 
must be attributed every straightforward and honor- 
able quality. Maurice Grau was the cleverest of 
entrepreneurs" 

Among the singers brought here by this combina-

tion was Tamagno, who appeared in 1890. The 
following season came Jean and Edouard de Reszke, 
who reigned supreme for a number of years. Also 
two American singers who had made reputations 
abroad, Emma Eames and Marie van Zandt. 
In 1893 Nellie Melba and Emma Calve came; 
and in 1894 Pol Plangon. In 1896 the Abbey and 
Grau combination collapsed. Abbey died soon after, 
and Grau continued alone until 1903. 

In 1895 Walter Damrosch made an effort, which 
extended over several years, to reestablish German 
opera, at the Metropolitan Opera House. This 
house, by the way, had been burned down in 1892, 
but was rebuilt and opened again in the following 
year. Several new singers were brought over from 
Germany, among them being Johanna Gadski. 

In 1897 and 1898 Walter Damrosch joined forces 
with Charles A. Ellis, the manager of the Boston 
Symphony Orchestra, who had already been manag- 
ing a company of which Melba was the star. 

In 1896 Ernestine Schumann-Heink made her 
first American appearance in Chicago, and the fol- 
lowing year joined the Metropolitan Company. 
Also Milka Ternina, an excellent artist, made her 
first appearance in Boston. 

In 1898 Maurice Grau was the leading operatic 
impresario once more and introduced several new 
singers, including Marie Brema, Suzanne Adams, an 
American, and Marie Engle, also in 1900 another 
American, Louise Homer, while of the men Albert

Alvarez, a French tenor, and Antonio Scotti, an 
Italian baritone, were the most brilliant stars. 

Italian opera was now being pushed hard by 
German opera, while French opera was very little 
heard. The table of performances published in New 
York at the end of the season 19001901 shows 
that Wagner had thirty-four performances out of 
a total of eighty-six. Gounod was next with twelve 
performances, Verdi with eight, Puccini with eight, 
Meyerbeer with five, Mascagni with four, Reyer and 
Massenet three each, Boito, Mozart and Donizetti 
two each, and Beethoven, Leoncavallo and Bizet 
one each. 

American composers were seeking new themes 
indigenous to the soil. Many had already written 
something under the title of " Rip van Winkle," 
and Walter Damrosch had brought out an opera 
based on Hawthorne's novel " The Scarlet Letter." 
Anton Dvorak composed his " New World Sym- 
phony " making use of negro melodies for his 
themes. The resources of the Indians, the prairies 
and the mountains have been tapped more or less 
successfully. The oil fields still offer a thrilling 
subject for the composer. 

1890. Jan. 4. Peter Cornelius's opera " Der iBarbier von 
Bagdad " presented at the Metropolitan Opera House, New 
York City, under Walter Damrosch, also J. Bayer's ballet

CHAPTER VIII 

1900 

THE first decade of the twentieth century was 
noteworthy for the establishment of orchestras 
throughout the land. During the nineteenth cen- 
tury the development of the resources of the coun- 
try and the increase of its wealth and population 
was phenomenal. In 1900 the population of the 
United States was about seventy-five millions. 
Chicago, which was practically non-existent in 1800, 
had a population of about two millions and was 
already a rival of New York. Railroads, unknown 
at the beginning of the nineteenth century, had 
covered the country with a network of communica- 
tions and caused the growth of large cities in places 
far remote from the civilization of the year 1 800. 

We find Minneapolis establishing an orchestra in 
1902, St. Paul in 1905, New Orleans in 1906, 
Seattle in 1908, while the Symphony Society of 
New York was reorganized in 1905, and a Russian 
Symphony orchestra established in New York City. 
The term " Symphony Orchestra " has been univer- 
sally adopted, till we have symphony orchestras even 
in the moving picture houses. In Grove's Dictionary 

117 



u8 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

(edition of 1890) the only symphony orchestra 
mentioned is " the Boston Symphony Orchestra," 
though the " Symphony Society " of New York is 
also listed. It seems then that the term " sym- 
phony " applied to an orchestra is an American 
qualification signifying complete equipment, and at 
least good intentions. 

During this period the New York Philharmonic 
Society adopted the plan, for three successive years, 
of engaging visiting, or guest conductors, and in this 
way a number of the most prominent European 
conductors were introduced to the American public. 

A few American composers emerged, and of them 
the most frequently found were Frederick S. Con- 
verse and Henry K. Hadley, of whose works several 
were produced by the leading orchestras and opera 
companies. 

The list of virtuosi is also long. Among pianists 
Harold Bauer and Ossip Gabrilovitsch appeared in 
1900, and later came Rudolf Ganz, Josef Lhevinne, 
Katherine Goodson, and Serge Rachmaninof. 
Among violinists, Kubel'ik, Kocian, Hugo Heerman, 
Jacques Thibaud, Efrem Zimbalist and Arthur 
Spalding, only the last being of American birth. 

The list of singers is long, and is chiefly associated 
with opera. Louise Homer, an American, made her 
debut in 1900, and Geraldine Farrar, another 
American, in 1906. Among other noted singers we 
find, Lucienne Breval, Caruso, Fremstad, Tetraz- 
zini, Bonci, Renaud, Chaliapine, Morena, Destinn, 



ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 119 

Mary Garden, John McCormack, Edouard Clement, 
and Slezak, samples of many nationalities. 

This brings us to the opera. Maurice Grau re- 
signed from the directorship of the Metropolitan 
Opera House in 1903. Grau brought the star 
system to a climax, and gave opera with " all star 
casts," but few new operas were presented under his 
management. In 1903 Heinrich Conried succeeded 
to the management of the Metropolitan Opera 
House, and set himself to work to abolish the star 
system, as far as possible, and produce a good en- 
semble. The abolition of the star system proved 
an impossibility, because people had been fed upon 
it since the musical life of the country began, and 
New York audiences would not go to hear singers 
who had not already made European reputations. 
But Mr. Conried succeeded in producing many works 
new to the American public. Of these " Parsifal " 
stands forth conspicuously, though he found a com- 
petitor in Henry W. Savage, who produced " Parsi- 
fal " in English a few days in advance of Mr. 
Conried's production. This was followed in 1906 
by Strauss's "Salome." Conried died in 1908 and 
was succeeded by the dual control of Signer Gatti- 
Casazza and Andreas Dippel, but Dippel soon re- 
signed and went to Chicago, and from that date until 
the present (1922) Signer Gatti-Casazza has been 
sole manager of the Metropolitan Opera House. 

In 1906 Oscar Hammerstein opened the Man- 
hattan Opera House in New York City and instituted 



120 ANNALS OF MUSIC IN AMERICA 

a strong rivalry with the Metropolitan. He brought 
to America some excellent singers and presented 
many works new to the American public. While 
the Metropolitan company gave more German than 
French or Italian opera, the Manhattan seemed to 
tend towards a preponderance of French opera. The 
rivalry was beneficial to the public if not to the stock- 
holders. 

We find during this period an opera, " The Pipe 
of Desire," by Frederick S. Converse, the first 
American opera to be presented at the Metropolitan 
Opera House. All the principals, with one excep- 
tion, were also of American birth, Louise Homer, 
Riccardo Martin, Clarence Whitehill and Herbert 
Witherspoon. The other principal was Lenora 
Sparks, an English singer. 

The most notable feature of the decade seems to 
have been the spread of musical enterprise through- 
out the country. Distant cities were organizing 
choral societies and orchestras to a greater extent 
than ever before. It is necessary not only to develop 
composers, support a few fine orchestras and pro- 
duce a few operas, but the nation must grow musi- 
cally as a whole. The support given to musical 
enterprise depends on the education of the rising 
generation, and must begin with the schools.
