Secretary Modern Music Society of New York 
Managing Editor THE ART OF Music 












Copyright, 1918, by 
Current Literature Publishing Company 


This initial issue of WHO'S WHO IN Music represents the first sys- 
tematic attempt at an international review of contemporary musical 
activity for the purpose of ready reference. In ^he. course of his four 
years ' experience in editing The Art of Music, the 'editor has frequently 
been struck by the need of such a work. Inquiries received by the 
editors of our musical journals, by the librarians of our ''great public 
libraries and others show that this need is general. It is in response 
to it that this task has been undertaken. 

Books of similar character hitherto have bejen frankly sectional in 
scope. The standard dictionaries, on the other hand, such as Grovels 
in England and Baker's in America have been concerned more with 
the past than the present, and a rather rigid standard of historical 
information has excluded many musicians of national and -international 
reputation concerning whom biographical information' is daily sought 
by their colleagues and by music lovers. 

It is not the purpose of this book to compete with these estimable 
works, but rather to supply the timely information which to a great 
extent lies beyond their scope, and, by periodical revision, to keep this 
information up-to-date. 

The aim of the editor has been to give in the briefest possible terms 
the record of the leading musical personalities of the present day. 
Critical comment has been avoided as beyond the province of such a 
work as this, and the articles have been confined solely to a statement 
of facts. In the case of composers who have achieved international 
fame, a complete list of works as far as available has been included, 
and this occupies, in a number of cases, by far the greater part of 
the space devoted to the subject. 

The Musical Gazetteer which forms the appendix to this volume is 
an attempt to epitomize musical activity all over the world by re- 
cording the permanent centers of musical life according to their locali- 
ties. This compilation must be regarded as suggestive rather than 
exhaustive, and it is hoped that by the co-operation of all those in- 
terested in this kind of information this department will grow with 
each edition until it becomes in fact a complete musical directory of 
the world. 

In his efforts to make this edition comprehensive and authentic, the 
editor has been confronted by many difficulties. In the first place, the 
war has almost entirely precluded direct communication with the sub- 


jects residing in continental Europe. It has therefore been necessary 
to rely in a large measure upon other sources of information. Among 
the works drawn upon are the recently published eighth edition of 
Riemann's invaluable Musiklexikon as well -as Grove's Dictionary of 
Music and Musicians and the volumes of the Art of Music series. 
Addresses and other information have also been obtained from the 
French Annuaire des Artistes and Qui est-ilf, Hess's Musiker-Kalender, 
the Musical Directory (London), the English Who's Who and Who's Who 
in Music, the German Wer istsf and the Italian Chi e, to all of which 
due acknowledgement is made herewith. The facts culled from these 
various sources have been as far as possible verified and corrected. It 
must, however, be borne in mind that little has been published on music 
in Europe since the war and that therefore the changes wrought by the 
great conflict have hardly been taken into account, especially as regards 
Germany, France, Italy and Russia. The addresses given are in every 
case the last known. It is not unlikely that many persons have now left 
their known domiciles and some, no doubt, given their lives in defense of 
their various countries. However, such deaths as have been recorded in 
the press of the Allied countries have been duly noted. 

As regards America, an extensive correspondence has secured virtually 
all the information at first hand, every subject selected being requested 
to answer the several questions printed on another page. To secure 
accuracy, proofs of the sketches were submitted for correction to all 
subjects within reach. The great number of foreign artists at present 
resident in the United States has to some extent compensated for the dif- 
ficulty of transatlantic communication. 

This difficulty accounts for the preponderance of American subjects 
in the present edition. It is the profound hope of the editor that in- 
ternational amity may have been re-established before the next biennial 
edition is prepared, so that this temporary lack of proportion may 
be righted by the compiling of material in the various countries them- 
selves. And it is our fervent wish that this work may do its small 
share in re-establishing mutual esteem and good-will among the na- 
tions, a task in which the artists of the world are privileged to be the 

In closing, the editor desires to extend his thanks to all those who 
have rendered assistance in this work first of all, to his co-workers 
in preparing the biographical material, Miss Elsa Guertler, Miss Marian 
Fairbanks and Mr. W. D. Darby; also to Mr. Alfred Remy, the editor 
of the new edition of Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians, for 
his cordial co-operation; to the editors of Musical America and other 
periodicals ; to the press representatives of our leading opera houses and 
concert agencies, and, finally, to his wife, for faithful assistance rendered 
at all stages of the work.

'DEBUSSY, Claude [Achille]: 

Composer; b. St. Germain-en-Laye, France, 
Aug. 22, 1862; was intended for a maritime 
career, but an early predeliction for the pi- 
ano caused a friend, Mme. Mautet (a pupil 
of Chopin) to prepare him for the Paris Con- 
servatoire; admitted there at the age of 11 
and stud, piano w. Marmontel (2nd prize, 
1877), solfeggio w. Lavignac (medal 3 yrs. 
in succession, 1874-6), composition w. Ernest 
Guiraud (mention for counterpoint and fugue, 
1882) ; also stud, organ w. Cesar Franck, 
whose constant insistance on "modulation" 
during improvisation placed him at odds with 
his pupil; journeyed to Russia w. Mme. 
Metch, the wife of a Russian railway con- 
structor, as domestic pianist; there met Bala- 
kirev, Borodin and Rimsky-Korsakov, and 
was impressed by the fantastic gypsy music 
which he heard; won the 2nd Prix de Rome, 
1883, and the Grand Prix de Rome w. his 
cantata "L'Enfant prodigue" (prod, as an 
opera in Boston, 1910), 1884; from Rome sent 
a fragment of a lyric drama "Almansor" 
[after Heine] (later destroyed by the com- 
poser), "Printemps," symphonic suite f. 
2-part women's chor. and orch., a cantata 
"La Demoiselle elue," and a Fantasy for pi- 
ano and orch. (still MS.). Upon his return 
to France stud, the score of Moossorgsky's 
"Boris Godounov," which greatly influenced 
him; visited Bayreuth in 1889 and heard 
"Tristan," "Parsifal" and "Meistersinger," 
again in 1890, after which he renounced the 
influence of Wagner; obtained the assistance 
of the publisher Georges Hartman for a time 
and settled in Paris as composer (piano 
pieces, songs, etc.); associated with the sym- 
bolist poets (Verlaine, Mallarme, etc), and 
painters like Whistler, frequented the "Salon 
de la Rose-Croix" and was prompted to at- 
tempt the adaptation of impressionist and 
symbolist theories to music. Brought out in 
1892 his symphonic tableau "L'apres-midi 
d'un faun" [after an eclogue by Mallarme], 
which embodied his new ideals; same yr. be- 
gan the composition of his opera, "Pelleas et 
Melisande" which occupied him during the 
next ten years, meantime producing several 
smaller works. "Pelleas," prod, at the Op- 

era-Comique, April 

1902 (Germany and 

Belgium, 1907, Italy, New York, 1908, England, 
1909), established his leadership of the "im- 
pressionistic" school, being regarded as the 
most important musical stage-work since 
Wagner. Pioneer in a new harmonic idiom, 
employing the higher primary overtones and 
the whole-tone scale, achieving archaic ef- 
fects by means of the old church-modes, and 
distinguished by free use of radical disson- 
ance and absence of definite tonality and 
modulation. Comp. : for orch.: "L'Apres-midi 
d'un faun" (1892, pub. 1902); 2 Danses w.
