"Robert Evett composer"

Robert Evett was born in a small town named Loveland in the Rocky Mountain country of central Colorado in 1922. In nearby Estes Park his father kept a livery stable. His mother played the piano, and it was she who introduced this youngest of her three sons to the art that was to be the center of his life. A frail, precocious child, he was composing music by the time he was attempting to play Bach.

He was in his early teens when he met Artur Schnabel, who was in Colorado on vacation. Evett showed the celebrated pianist a piano sonata he had written and was encouraged to believe he was right in thinking it was his vocation to be a composer.
