Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff
(1873–1943) is known for his virtuosic piano performances and popular compositional style.
Its driving rhythmic force and Russian nationalistic themes have kept it popular since he first played it in 1903. (You may listen to him play
Mendelssohn’s Spinning Song
on my page for Harvey Gaul’s organ arrangement.)
Gottfried H Federlein (1883-1952) was born in New York City, the second
son of Gottlieb H Federlein, a Jewish organist (student of Rheinberger) and
voice teacher, and Ella Harrison, a contralto soloist. Gottfried began his
music study at an early age, began playing Episcopal services at age 17, and
was awarded the FAGO at age 20. He was supportive of Robert Hope-Jones and
the Wurlitzer “Unit Orchestra” and continued his use of colorful
solo stops throughout all of his playing and compositions. He is best remembered
for his 30 years at Temple Emanu-El in New York. Moderately difficult.
