Joseph Joachim Raff
(1822–1882), born in Lachen, Switzerland, was a self-taught
composer who was assisted in his career by Felix Mendelssohn and Franz Liszt. During his lifetime, he was regarded as a composer
to be the equal of Brahms and Wagner. Amongst his approximately 300 compositions are 11 symphonies, concertos, chamber, and piano
music. After Raff was named the director of the Hoch Conservatory in Frankfurt in 1877, students came from abroad to study with him,
including Edward MacDowell of Woodland Sketches
Samuel Brenton Whitney
(1842–1914) was the organist for the Church of the
Advent in Boston, Massachusetts, taught at New England Conservatory, and was a founder
of the American Guild of Organists
. Raff’s Cavatina will serve as a showcase for your solo stops. While this melody
is not well known to organists today, it is still played by violinists and recognized by many. Easy.
