American composers on American music : a symposium by Henry Cowell( Book )

31 editions published between 1933 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first collection of serious critical essays on modern American music, this volume of opinions expressed by composers themselves brought volleys of dissension and a little praise when it first appeared. American music was without honor in its own country. Names such as Aaron Copland, Charles Seeger, Roy Harris, Howard Handson, Edgard Varese, Carlos Chavez, Charles Ives--and Henry Cowell--were known to only a musical few, and accepted by even fewer. Their thoughtfully written expositions of personal theories about music and other composers were on the whole considered upstart and absurd. But the crucible of time has made this once highly controversial volume as fascinating as it is instructive. Its subjects, authors, and views have now earned their historical place. As the editor states in his introduction, he placed his bets well. The essays make a contribution ot the literature that is very good reading for both musicians and now a wide musical public

Essential Cowell : selected writings on music by Henry Cowell( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents for the first time a generous selection from the more than 200 essays and articles written by one of the most original American composers and musical theorists of the twentieth century. There are articles on harmony, melody, notation and music history; essays on vocal innovation, folk music, and the intersection of music with other arts; reviews of concerts and recordings by contemporaries; notes on several of his own works, and several pieces on his life and experiences as a composer. As founder in 1925 of the New Music Society, he became a concert impresario for works by, among others, Carl Ruggles, Arnold Schoenberg, Charles Ives and Leo Ornstein; and publisher from 1927 to 1958 of New Music: A Quarterly of Musical Compositions. His many students included George Gershwin, John Cage, and Lou Harrison, but his interests extended beyond western classical traditions, and his radio program, ¿7FMusic of the World's Peoples," introduced a large audience to world music long before it was fashionable. Just as Cowell's groundbreaking book of 1930, New Musical Resources, continues to inspire successive generations of composers, Essential Cowell is key to understanding the origins and expanding dimensions of contemporary music
