The Search for Thomas F. Ward, Teacher of Frederick Delius

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published by University Press of Florida. The Search for Thoams F. Ward, Teacher of Frederick Delius, by Don C. Gillespie.

Mint condition hardback, still sealed in plastic wrapping.

Thomas F. Ward (1856-1912), the American teacher of the composer Frederick Delius, died in historical oblivion and was buried in an unmarked grave, apparently too poor to pay his own funeral expenses. This biography of Ward describes his crucial influence on Delius, an Englishman whose formative musical years were spent under Ward's tutelage in the mid-1880s on an orange plantation on the St. Johns River south of Jacksonville, Florida. Don Gillespie's fascination with Delius began when, as an undergraduate music student from a south Georgia town, he was drawn to a haunting picture--a cabin in a swamp, some cypress trees, hanging moss--on one of the composer's record jackets. Delius's evocative southern harmonies played in Gillespie's mind throughout decades of hectic work in music publishing in New York City. His lifelong fascination with Delius eventually led to an obsession with the mysterious aura surrounding the composer's most important teacher. Gillespie traces Ward's life from his Catholic musical upbringing as an orphan in Brooklyn, to many parts of Florida, to his death in Houston, offering new information about art and folk music in both Brooklyn and Florida in the late 19th century.
