Roy Hamlin Johnson, piano


John Powell (b. 1882, Richmond, Va., d. 1963, Charlottesville) was a concert pianist, composer, and eloquent advocate of an American national music based on the folk music of his native South. Most important among his works derived from that source are the Rhapsodie Nègre (1918)—inspired by Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness—and the Symphony in A (1945). Before World War I, he also wrote in what he then termed "classical," i.e. German Post-Romantic style. The climax of that period is the 62-minute Sonata Teutonica, Op. 24 (1913)...The two compositions on the present disc, plus the Sonata Noble, Op. 21 (1908), form the rest of his major "classical" works for solo piano.
