Description
A comparative latecomer to the world of classical music, America has nonetheless produced many of the greatest composers of the past century. In a survey that extends from colonial times to the 21st century, Barrymore Laurence Scherer assesses the musical contributions of such composers as Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Scott Joplin, Amy Beach, Charles Ives, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber, Philip Glass, and John Cage, situating them in the context of American history. The book—which contains 35 black and white photographs—is accompanied by a 78-minute CD which features excerpts from many of the works under discussion.
