The Etude magazine, April 1908. Young man plays the piano to an entranced young woman.
The Library of Congress says that it was published as “THE ETUDE AND MUSICAL WORLD” in 1896-1897, and they have Vol. 14, no. 1 (Jan. 1896). Title became THE ETUDE for 1897-1922, ETUDE MUSIC MAGAZINE 1922-1948, and simply ETUDE 1948-57. Last issue in LC was May 6, 1957.
The Etude, October 1908. Woman reads The Etude and sings along with the songbirds.
Targeted as much as possible to all musicians, from the novice to the serious student to the professional, The Etude printed articles about both basic/popular and more involved musical subjects (including history, literature, gossip, and politics), write-in advice columns about musical pedagogy, and graded piano sheet music.
The Etude, May 1913. Presser’s Musical Magazine. Schubert and His Friends.
Franz Schubert (1797-1828) at the piano, playing for his friends while some of them sing. Appreciation of Schubert’s music while he was alive was limited to a relatively small circle of admirers in Vienna, as on the Etude cover, but interest in his work increased significantly in the decades immediately after his death.
