The American composer and teacher, Arne Oldberg, was born in Ohio and moved with his parents to Chicago in 1886. At a very early age Oldberg exhibited musical talents and his father taught him to play the piano. He studied music with several piano instructors at the Gottschalk Lyric School in Chicago and in 1892 was graduated with honors. He continued his musical education for two years with Theodor Leschetizky in Vienna. On his return to his family’s home, now in Evanston, Illinois, he was occupied with composing, presenting piano recitals, and teaching piano in Chicago. He wrote an exceptional body of solo piano music, chamber music, and orchestral music. His music has now fallen into obscurity, which it certainly does not deserve. Pianist Jennifer Muniz aims to bring his work back into the public eye with this album.
