Music for Solo Piano

Francis Johnson
Francis Johnson (1792-1844) was an important figure in the development of American music in the first half of the 19th century. Born a free Black in Philadelphia in 1792, he was one of the the first African-Americans to publish music in this country, and possibly the first American of any color to tour Europe as a musician, where he played for Queen Victoria of England.
He returned to America and was the first musician to introduce "promenade concerts" to Philadelphia audiences in the 1840s. As a
composer, he wrote more than 300 pieces, of which some many survive.
