Henry Hadley


Born: December 20, 1871   Died: September 6, 1937   Country: USA   Period: Late Romantic
Henry Hadley was the first American conductor to hold a full-time position with a major American orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, in 1921. He founded the National Association for American Composers and Conductors, and was also helped establish the Berkshire Music Festival at Tanglewood, Massachusetts, in 1934. Hadley was one of the most performed American composers at the beginning of the 20th Century. He was primarily an orchestral composer Read more and his works show a refined sense of orchestral color and richness consistent within the Late-Romantic style. He composed overtures, symphonic poems, orchestral suites, and symphonies, as well as concertos for both cello and piano. He also composed stage works, including operettas and musicals, as well as five grand operas. Hadley's style, with a love of exotic programmatic subjects, could be comparable to contemporary British and European composers of the early 20th Century, such a Bantock or Korngold, and to contemporary Americans of that time, such as Chadwick, Payne or Converse.
