#BlackHistoryMonth: Francis Johnson a very famous American composer (1792-1844) composed and performed pieces before Queen Victoria for her ascent to the throne. (x)

A townsman in Philadelphia notes that nothing would be more natural than for a master such as Johnson to perform…as a hint as to why Johnson’s music was included in compilations alongside Beethoven, Bellini, Brahms,Burgmüller, Czerny, Donizetti and Weber.

Composers Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel may have been influenced by Johnson’s techniques.
