This morning between 7:30 and 8 we played two American works. The first was by George Chadwick, whose birthday it is today. The second piece, titled “Jota Aragonesa,” is by a 19th-century American whose melodic ideas often sprang from Spanish and Latin American sources. Sometimes called “the American Chopin,” what’s the name of this pianist/composer who grew up in New Orleans?
