Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: Vol. iii. of The Art of Music (1915). R.10 FORSYTH, WESLEY OCTAVIUS (Jan. 26, 1863, near Toronto, Ont.), after preliminary training in Toronto, studied with Zwintscher, Krause and Jadassohn in Leipzig and with Epstein in Vienna. Since 1892 he has worked in Toronto as pianist and teacher, for a time as director of the Metropolitan School of Music, but recently as private teacher. His published compositions, about sixty altogether, are songs and piano-pieces. FOSTER FRANKLIN 209 A suite for orchestra, a string-quartet and many smaller works are still in manuscript. He has done much, by writing and teaching, for the development of piano-music in Canada. R.8 FOSTER, FAY, who was born in Leavenworth, Kan., began her public musical work early, being organist at twelve, accompanist for the Sherwood Concert Company at seventeen and head of a music-school in Onarga, I11., at nineteen. At the Sherwood Music School in Chicago she studied singing with Mme. Dove-Boitte, piano with Sherwood and theory with Gleason. For twelve years she was in Europe, taking piano under Reisenauer in Leipzig, Menter and Schwartz in Munich, and Rosenthal in Vienna, singing at Cologne, Munich, Leipzig and Berlin, and composition under Jadassohn. Since 1911 she has lived in New York. Her waltz 'Die Woche' won a prize over many competitors in Berlin, and she holds prizes also for songs, women's choruses and piano-pieces. Of the songs 45 are published, with 9 part-songs. R.8 FOSTER, STEPHEN COLLINS (July 4, 1826, Pittsburgh: Jan. 13, 1864, New York). See article in Vol. ii. 90-1. Interest in his music and his unfortunate life does not diminish. It is possible that investigations now being made may shed light upon his story and dissipate some of the shadows across it. more
