Foreword Gottschalk and His Notes of a Pianist by S. Frederick Starr Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829–1869) was America’s ﬁrst internation ally recognized composer, its ﬁrst virtuoso pianist, ﬁrst musical national ist, and ﬁrst Pan-American artist in any ﬁeld. At once a Jacksonian democrat and a snob, he was hailed in his native New Orleans as the Chopin of the Creoles, yet he supported the Union during the Civil War.
Louis Moreau Gottschalk was sometimes called the American Chopin, or the Chopin of the Creoles. Notes of a Pianist: The Chronicles of a New Orleans Music Legend (Princeton University Press) is a delightful book. Gottschalk was masterful with words as well as with musical notes. His music, mostly piano pieces, is by turns jovial, stormy, sentimental, or lachrymose, and is a surprising blend of European, African-American, and Latin music, with plenty of quotations from American national ballads thrown in. It isn't superficial, but its appeal is frank and obvious, which is perhaps why he isn't heard often these days.

Louis Moreau Gottschalk had something resembling rock-star status in 19th-century America, but the pianist-composer's most important contribution might not be musical; rather, it might be his tumultuous, trenchant, Zelig-like diary. His perspective is singularly significant. -David Patrick Stearns, Philadelphia Inquirer.
