There is little doubt that during his lifetime MacDowell was over-rated, but now the pendulum of opinion has swung far too much the other way, which is due to the fact that Romanticism is at present out of fashion. Edward MacDowell was born at New York in 1861 and died there in 1908. He studied in France and Germany, and in the latter country spent a few years teaching the pianoforte at Darmstadt Conservatoire and elsewhere, and made quite a success as a composer. On his return to New York he was appointed Professor of Music at Columbia University. MacDowell's range of composition was wide, since he wrote symphonic poems, concertos, orchestral suites, choral works, sonatas, and a great number of smaller pieces and songs. It is as a miniaturist that MacDowell showed himself to be a master: polished workmanship, richness of invention, and genuine poetic sense are the hall-mark of his pianoforte pieces and songs. It is worthy of note that MacDowell was the first American composer and virtuoso to win international recognition of a high order.
