schema:description"performances of his Hiawatha far exceeded in number those of any other work of the time. This new biography surveys critically the music and considers the reasons for its neglect today. It examines the influences on the man and composer, and in turn his impact above all on negro communities, especially in the USA, which he visited on several occasions with triumphal success. The book includes a number of photographs and over 100 music illustrations, previously."@en
