This Is Newly Printed Music
Quentin Stuart Morvaren Maclean
(1896–1962) studied with Karl Straube and Max Reger and played regularly on the radio.
He was a theatre organist from 1921 to 1939, and this published music is typical of his arrangements. He moved to Canada in 1939.
This restoration is based on the personal copy of Lew Williams who offers this on Maclean: “He always smoked at the console
during his cinema days in the UK, lighting a new one off of the end of the old one, then stubbing it out on the bench or keycheek.
He liked Players #3 brand. He died of lung cancer, aged 66, in Toronto, July 9, 1962.”
František Alois Drdla (1868–1944), commonly known as Franz Drdla, was born in what is now the Czech Republic.
He was a concert violinist, known for his short, light romantic pieces. “Souvenir,” written in 1904 and one of his
first pieces for violin and piano, became his most popular piece. Easy.
