George Frederick Bristow

Born into a musical family in Brooklyn, NY, in 1825, the prodigy George Frederick Bristow received his first musical instruction (piano, violin and composition) from his musician-conductor father. At 17 he joined the New York Philharmonic in the First Violin section where he remained until 1879, being concertmaster from 1850 to 1853. More than 35 years in this position gave him invaluable exposure to the greatest composers, conductors orchestra and other musicians around the world. From the 1850s he also became a conductor of church choirs and choral groups for which he wrote secular works with American nationalist texts such as “Great Republic: Ode to the American Union”, “Pioneer, a Grand Cantata” and “Keep Step with the Music of Union.” Bristow has always been a champion of American music and is receiving attention as one of the first great American composers. With a 2nd movement “Nocturno” and “The Butterfly’s Frolic” sCherzo 3rd, Bristow’s Symphony No. 3 in F sharp minor from 1858 is the masterpiece of today’s noon at 2 p.m.
