Biographical History

James Huneker was an American author and critic born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Huneker studied music in Europe under Alfredo Barili and others. He wrote the analysis and commentary on the complete works of Chopin for Schirmer's music publishing company. His analysis of all the piano solo works of Brahms, written shortly after the complete works of Brahms were published after Brahms' death, is highly regarded. He was the music editor of the New York Sun, and a frequent contributor to the leading magazines and reviews. He wrote several books, but is mainly remembered for his music criticism.
