Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The American William Humphreys Dayas (1864 - 1903) studied with Liszt, was friends with Busoni and became a major piano teacher, spreading the message of Liszt's music to his students in Helsinki, Wiesbaden, Cologne and Manchester, where his short life came to an end. Dayas left only a handful of compositions, but they include two major organ sonatas - passionate, Lisztian works that have remained completely unknown until now. Dayas also arranged for organ the Thme vari for piano four hands by another forgotten American composer, Arthur H. Bird (1856 - 1923), a further important addition to the late-Romantic organ repertoire.
