Earl wild, November 26, 1915 – January 23, 2010

Earl Wild was an accomplished pianist and composer who was also known for his virtuoso transcriptions of Rachmaninov and Gershwin.  He was the first pianist to perform a recital on U.S. television, in 1939, and was the first pianist to stream a performance over the Internet, in 1997.

In 1942, Arturo Toscanini invited him for a performance of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, which was a resounding success and made him a household name. During World War II, Wild served in the United States Navy as a musician. Earl Wild was renowned for his virtuoso recitals and master classes held around the world, from Seoul, Beijing, and Tokyo to Argentina, England and throughout the United States.
