Louis Moreau Gottschalk (May 8, 1829 – December 18, 1869) was an American composer and pianist, best known as a virtuoso performer of his own romantic piano works. He spent most of his working career outside of the United States. Gottschalk was born in New Orleans to an Ashkenazi Jewish businessman from London (Edward Gottschalk) and a French Creole mother (Aimée Marie Bruslé). He had six brothers and sisters, five of whom were half-siblings by his father's biracial mistress.

Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829–69) is still remembered as one of the most interesting early American composers, a composer whose work is still performed and enjoyed. This collection of Gottschalk's major piano music shows the wide range of his talent from the "wild, languishing" derivations on Negro and Creole folk melodies to his elegant and moving concert and salon compositions.Included are such pieces as "Bamboula, Danse de Négres," "The Banjo, Grotesque Fantasie, Mexican Sketch," "La Savane, Ballade Créole," "Manchega, Etude de Concert," "La Gallina, Danse Cubaine," "Souvenir de Porto Rico, Marche des Gibaros," "Sixiéme Ballade," "The Dying Poet, Meditation," "The Last Hope, Religious Meditation," "Ses Yeux, Polka de Concert," and 16 other pieces.This book has been especially designed as a playing edition — the noteheads are large and easily readable at the piano, and the margins and spaces between staves are adequate for written notes, fingerings, and turnovers. It is also most useful for analysis.

Book doesn't actually stay flat as they claim (as always expected from Dover). Printing clarity is OK. No obvious errors thus far. A bit pricey.

Especially if you enjoy sight reading music. I found the binding too rigid to keep open while I played the music, so I had the volume binding cut off and spirally bound. The lack of printed fingering of the music passages slowed me down, too. So I made my own annotations. But it was worth it, because the music is such fun to play.

Just like new!

The prints are very clear and professional. However, being from original editions, this edition contains many symbols / bass clef signs which are not in use today, which makes it difficult for students to read.

What has happened to American music patriotism?
Louis Moreau Gottschalk was probably the first American Pop Star ! In the 1850's women swooned. If it were permissal to hurl their nickers on stage they would have done do! The story goes that he was the musical Brad Pitt of the age.
This is a music book for pianists! It contains a wealth of information about this pop star in the form of notes to the music as well as the music itself (for those who play the piano).
Dover Publications are often more user friendly than some of the others. This publication contains anecdotes and copies of the original binder covers from some of the music books first published.
For pianists this is a delightful and well presented edition of an important part of American history.
There are a number of beautifully played CD's available. Get the book and read along with the CD. Now that is something you never thought of!
MEGA FREEDY
Gottschalk is a name few mention when talking about great composers, but he is equal to many who have much more name recognition. His virtuosity at the piano over-shadowed how good a composer he was. Calling him the "American Chopin" is not an exagerration. The book has some great works, but is missing a few of his masterpieces, namely "Radieuse', "La Scintilla" and the "Battle Cry of Freedom".
Kabandis
I sigh only because I wish I could obtain his music somehow. Unfortunately, it is not very readily available to me. I have found it here, but it's either special order or out of print, and neither is too accessible. Briefly I was able to borrow the music of this charming composer, and I enjoyed it for the short time I was able to see it. I hope can someday become reacquainted.
