Four years later, Stojowski sailed for the U.S. at the invitation of educator and conductor Frank Damrosch, who had recruited Stojowski for the faculty of his new Institute for Musical Art in New York. This school would evolve in the 1920s into the Juilliard School. The dashing Pole seemed the epitome of European musical culture to American students, and Stojowski was in demand both at Juilliard and as a private teacher. Among his students were Arthur Loesser
, Antonia Brico, and Gershwin
specialist Oscar Levant
Stojowski married the Peruvian pianist Luisa Morales Maceo, and the pair had three children whom he called his greatest compositions. Nevertheless, not only Stojowski's piano music, but also a substantial Violin Concerto in G minor, Op. 22, in the Dvorák
vein, have been revived in the 21st century. Stojowski died in New York on November 5, 1946.
