Edward MacDowell (1860–1908), although rather unknown in Germany, ranks among the most important musicians of North America on the threshold of the 20th century. He received his musical training in Paris, Stuttgart, Wiesbaden and Frankfurt. In 1888 MacDowell returned to the USA where he was celebrated as a pianist and composer, as 'the greatest musical genius America has produced'. Influenced by the works of Schumann and Grieg, his 3 Poems display a mature romantic sound image. The pieces for four hands live on their strong expression while being soft, sensitive and subtle in the detail. The gentle tones reflect MacDowell's love of nature, especially of the clouds and the sea, with 3 Poems beginning with the movement Night by the Sea. The pieces are ideal for lessons, recitals and concert performances.
