Listen to an hour of piano or organ music from the pianonoise archives. All from the fingers of Michael Hammer, webmaestro, concert pianist and organist.

The Current program: The fascinating music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk, an early American pioneer of the piano recital. In his short life he concertized on three continents, including the northern United States during the Civil War. Most of these recordings were made in late June 2013 as I prepared for a concert to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1-3 1863. Gottschalk happened to be touring in Pennsylvania at the time. Some of his entertaining writings can be found here.
