Margaret Juntwait presents four programmes exploring music in Boston between the end of the American
Civil War and the First World
War, the period in which American music gradually shook off European influences and found a voice of its own. The father figure of the Boston school was John Knowles Paine
(1839-1906), the first professor of music at
Harvard University, where he taught many of the Boston composers. Today's programme sets the scene and traces Paine's career, with contributions from
Steven Ledbetter , Murray Forbes Sommerville ,
Elliot Forbes and Virginia Eskin and musical illustrations from
Paine's own compositions: Symphony No 1 in C minor (1st mvt)
Larghetto and Humoreske, Op 23
Agnus Dei; Dona nobis pacem (Mass in D)
A Hester Furman production
