Gottschalk in Petaluma - 150 Year Commemorative Concert
The Petaluma Historical Library & Museum (Petaluma's 'Little Carnegie Hall') will host a duo-pianist concert to commemorate L. M. Gottschalk's Petaluma performance exactly 150 years ago on July 27, 1865.
Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829-1869), known as America's first concert pianist and composer, was the "rock star" pianist of the day, mobbed by adoring fans wherever he went.
Pianists Marilyn Thompson and Antonio Iturrioz will perform 2-hand and 4-hand pieces by Gottschalk, who staged "monster" concerts that included up to 30 pianos, and orchestras with 650 musicians.
