Overview

Frances McCollin, a Philadelphia composer and violist (1892-1960), wrote 333 compositions, of which 93 were published during her lifetime; over 500 performances of her works took place during her lifetime with major orchestras such as the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Warsaw Philharmonic, and the Indianapolis Symphony. The two conductors who championed her music were Fabien Sevitzky and Leopold Stokowski, and she won 19 national awards. Her compositions, transcribed by Vincent Persichetti and others after she became blind at a young age, include works for symphony orchestra, chorus, and chamber ensembles, and solo works for organ, violin, piano, and solo voices. In this book DiMedio presents an introductory essay on McCollin's life and a catalog of compositions, with over 300 musical examples.
