A Tribute to an Authentic Musician
Aldwell joined the Curtis faculty in 1971. Along with Carl Schachter, Ed Aldwell co-authored and published Harmony and Voice Leading, now a standard textbook. Aldwell was also a leading interpreter of Bach which earned him a cult-like following. (Recordings)
Many of his former students flew to Philadelphia today from all over the US to honor this special person. Aldwell wasn’t a mere mortal music theory teacher but a brilliant scholar, a magnificent pianist and a witty man who gave each of us a gift of his musical authenticity.
We will miss him terribly.
