2 - 4 weeks availability
An American Romantic-Realist Abroad chronicles the work of George Templeton Strong, an American composer and painter who remained in close contact with musical and artistic developments in the United States despite the fact that the bulk of his work was done in Europe. This carefully researched presentation includes musical examples, excerpts from Strong's correspondence, and press reviews of his works in order to examine his artistic goals and illuminate the atmosphere of the time as well as his aspirations, frustrations, and achievements. Detailed analyses of certain works complement a comprehensive catalog of Strong's published and unpublished compositions, with full publication details and the location of unpublished work.
William C. Loring, Jr., Ph.D. is a Docent at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American Art and serves as a series editor for the Scarecrow Press series, Composers of North America.
