From the early Italian operas to Schubert’s evenings of music, where friends gathered, music was made – in celebration, in commemoration, in mourning. This was no different in nineteenth century America. Around the middle of the century, art music appeared as a viable compositional endeavor, particularly in the Northeast, and a new era in composition took form.
