 Update me on new releases by Behrend

Jeanne Behrend (1911 - 1988)


Behrend studied at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia. Her tuition in piano was with Josef Hofmann and she learnt composition with Rosario Scalero. Behrend’s main interest was in American music, and at the end of World War II, at the recommendation of Villa-Lobos, the US State Department sponsored her in a ten-month concert tour of South America. In 1959 Behrend founded the Philadelphia Festival of Western Hemisphere Music, a festival for which the Brazilian government awarded her the Southern Cross in recognition of her promotion of Brazilian music.

Behrend taught piano at the Curtis Institute, the Juilliard School of Music, Western College, Ohio, and the Philadelphia Conservatory, and she gave courses in American music at Temple University, the Juilliard School, and the Philadelphia Conservatory. In 1969 she was appointed to the Philadelphia Music Academy, where she taught piano and in 1974 founded a course for adult beginners. Behrend’s publications include editions of songs by Stephen Foster, early American choral music, piano music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and Gottschalk’s Notes of a Pianist.
