GLEASON, Frederic Grant, musician, born in Middletown, Connecticut, 17 December 1848. After studying under Dudley Buck, he, in 1869, went to Leipsic, Germany, where he pursued his musical education under Moscheles and Richter. Later, in Berlin, Weitzmann, and, in London, Oscar Beringer were among his teachers. On his return to the United States he settled in Hartford, Connecticut, and in 1876 he went to Chicago, where he is now (1887) musical critic of the " Tribune." His chief compositions are two operas of the grand romantic type, "Otho Visconti" and "Montezuma." The vorspiel and many parts of "Otho Visconti " have been published (New York).
