Gottschalk: Piano Music, Vol. 3

This third volume brings to wider attention eleven further morceaux from the pen of Louis Moreau Gottschalk, the father of American composition. With their unique spontaneity and prophetic use of native syncopated rhythms—anticipating ragtime by some fifty years—these are works of intoxicating effect and great individuality.
