Alice and Arthur Nagle Collection

Photograph, Alice and Arthur Nagle, pianistsThe husband and wife team of Alice and Arthur Nagle performed duo piano concerts in the Washington DC area and throughout the United States for almost 50 years. They met while studying with Edwin Hughes at the Washington College of Music. The two joined the faculty at the Washington College of Music and played their first duo piano concert together in 1943 before Arthur Nagle joined the army. They received coaching as a duo piano team from Nadia Boulanger and duo-pianists Gold and Fizdale. The Nagles performed in recital, lecture recitals and on radio and television. They were advocates for twentieth century music and had duo piano works written for them by several composers including Richard Bales, Esther Ballou, Robert Evett, Mary Howe and Malcolm Williamson.

The Nagle Collection consists of a large number of published and unpublished scores of duo piano works, as well as concert programs, articles and unpublished acetate discs of performances by the Nagles.
