Notes and Editorial Reviews

Arthur Foote was one of the most accomplished and distinguished professional musicians this nation has ever produced. Unfortunately, 60 years after his death, he is all but forgotten, relegated to the occasional footnote in biographies of his more famous contemporaries and successors like Edward MacDowell and Charles Ives. Partly this is due to the fact that, although Foote lived well into the last century, his work never progressed beyond the bounds of the late Romantic period, the era of Brahms and Wagner. Foote was trained entirely in the United States, though his instruction strongly favored the dominant European style of the time. He entered Harvard in 1870 where he became a student of Paine. In 1875, he received a Master of Arts Read more degree in music, the first music student in American history to earn such an advanced degree from a domestic university, a distinguished achievement given the fact that all his contemporaries studied abroad. As a performer, he was an accomplished organist. He was a founding member of the American Guild of Organists in 1909 and served as its President until 1912. He taught piano privately and was active as a chamber musician before he joined the faculty of the New England Conservatory in 1920, where he taught piano until his death. He also wrote two books on harmony. Read less
