Gottschalk - Music for 2 and 4 hands



Louis Moreau Gottschalk, born on 8 May 1829, was a musical boulevardier of the Deep South. Always an exhibitionist, Gottschalk wrote his best music for himself to play on solo piano. Just as Liszt invented the 'Piano recital' in Europe, so did Gottschalk in the United States. "I was the first American pianist, not in stature, but in time," Gottschalk could quite truthfully say of himself.
