Why do not we discuss Arthur P. Schmidt?



Through the years that I’ve written my weblog, Arthur P. Schmidt,
writer has been the subject of three of my postings.  His firm, The Arthur P. Schmidt Co. of
Boston, Leipzig and New York, was a premiere music publishing firm of the
period.  As I’ve stated in my earlier posts,
Mr. Schmidt promoted American composers and particularly American ladies composers.  He was an individual of imaginative and prescient, of musical
integrity along with his perception in our nation’s composers.  BRAVO, Mr. Schmidt.

Just lately an October 2017 weblog posting titled, “Why don’t we
discuss Arthur P. Schmidt”? got here to my consideration.
  The weblog was written by a pupil at St. Olaf  School in Minnesota who was taking the course: Music
345: Race, Identification, and Illustration in American Music


What struck me about
this posting was the sense of discovery, commentary, understanding of the
music world on the earth of enterprise, conclusions made and a brand new consciousness of
the vital music publishing particular person, Arthur P. Schmidt. 


Siriana, the weblog
creator, has written a publish that has direct impact on the understanding of
our nation’s music publishing trade in the course of the late 19
th and
into the mid 20
th century. 
Required studying……certainly.


Thanks Siriana.
