William H. Sherwood was among the first internationally renowned American pianists. He made a lasting impression in Berlin with a performance of Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto in 1872 and shortly thereafter studied with Franz Liszt, who would also offer to serve as the godfather to Sherwood's daughter. Across his long and successful career Sherwood concertized and taught in several major American cities and founded the Sherwood Music School in Chicago.
