"Look down, fair moon [notated music]." Charles Naginski. New York: G. Schirmer, 1943.
Charles Naginski (1909-1940) was born in Cairo, Egypt. In 1928, he won a fellowship at the Juilliard Graduate School in New York City. During his career, tragically cut short by an accidental drowning in a swimming pool at Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts, Naginski wrote works for orchestra, string quartet and songs for voice and piano. He did not write many songs, but the work that is best known to modern audiences is his song "Look down, fair moon," from a poem by Walt Whitman. Naginski studied composition with Rubin Goldmark, Roger Sessions and Paul Hindemith and won the American Prix de Rome in 1938.
