George Whitefield Chadwick (1854-1931) was one of the most significant and influential American composers at the turn of the twentieth century and a leading light of the Boston cultural scene. Bill F. Faucett offers a detailed exploration of Chadwicks life and art utilizing archival material only recently made available. These crucial primary sources, including letters, diaries, and memoirs, enable a deeper and more nuanced understanding of Chadwicks music and aesthetic perspective, and provide a clearer lens through which to view his life, career, and times.

The book traces Chadwicks story from his earliest musical education to his surging career in Bostons nascent musical culture of the 1880s, to his fruitful middle years, and finally to his later life and towering legacy. In addition to bringing newfound appreciation of Chadwicks life, Faucetts book offers penetrating examinations of his major compositions and a vivid re-creation of Bostons rich and influential musical and cultural scene.
