Howard Hanson — Swedish-American Composer, brief synopsis:
Howard Hanson, (born Oct. 28, 1896, Wahoo, Neb., U.S.—died Feb. 26, 1981, Rochester, N.Y.), composer, conductor, and teacher who promoted contemporary American music and was, in his own compositions, a principal representative of the Romantic tradition.
After studying in New York, Hanson taught in San Jose, Calif., and spent three years in Italy (1921–24) as winner of the American Prix de Rome. On his return to the United States he became director of the newly organized Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., a post he held until his retirement in 1964. He established annual festivals of American music and conducted more than 1,000 new works by young composers, many of them his own pupils. In 1958 he organized the Eastman Philharmonia, a student orchestra with which he toured Europe, the Soviet Union, and the Middle East in 1961–62.
Hanson refers to his Swedish ancestry in his Symphony No. 1 (1923; Nordic). His Symphony No. 2 (1930; Romantic), commissioned by the Boston Symphony Orchestra on its 50th anniversary, proclaimed his faith in Romanticism. His Symphony No. 4 (1943; Requiem), dedicated to the memory of his father, won a Pulitzer Prize. Among his other works are the Symphony No. 5 (1955; Sinfonia Sacra); the Lux Aeterna for orchestra (1923); Songs from Drum Tap for voices and orchestra (1935; after Walt Whitman); an opera, Merry Mount (1934), commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera; and chamber music. He also published a textbook for advanced students, Harmonic Materials of Modern Music (1960). Hanson’s style belongs to the mid-20th century. His harmonies, although complex, are sonorous; his rhythms are strong and varied, and his orchestration is effective. Although he was influenced by Jean Sibelius and Modest Mussorgsky, his style is individual.

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid (virtue signalers) join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." — Mark Twain
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
