PEASE, Alfred Humphreys, musician, born in Cleveland, Ohio, 6 May, 1838; died in St. Louis, Missouri, 12 July, 1882. He was educated at Kenyon college, Ohio, and later studied music in Germany under Theodor Kullak, Richard Wuerst, Wieprecht, and, on a second visit to Europe, under Hans yon Bulow, for three years. After his return he gave concerts in different cities of the Union, and became known as a brilliant and graceful pianist. Of his compositions, his songs, of which "Break, break, break " (1864) was the earliest, were perhaps most popular, and they found favor with some of the foremost vocalists of the day. His piano-music also met with success, and his orchestral compositions include a "Reverie arid Andante," "Andante and Scherzo," " Romanze," and "Concerto" (1875), all of which have been performed by Theodore Thomas's orchestra in New York and other cities.
