"Since its original publication in 1930, Henry Cowell's New Musical Resources has become recognized as one of the few seminal technical studies to be written by a twentieth-century composer. In 1971, Virgil Thomson hailed it as "a classic." A decade or so previously, Mauricio Kagel had characterized it as being "one of the few documents to treat concretely and shrewdly the ideas about musical theory developed during the first half of the twentieth century."" "Cowell's self-styled "theory of musical relativity" aimed to "point out the influence the overtone series has exerted on music throughout its history, how many musical materials of all ages are related to it, and how, by various means of applying its principles in many different manners, a large palette of musical materials can be assembled." In this respect Cowell was anticipating many of the ideas to be realized in avant-garde and experimental music from the 1950s on." "For this new edition, David Nicholls has provided annotations and an explanatory essay. The essay traces the sources for the book, compares its text with that of the original manuscript, and attempts to place Cowell's theories in the broader context of musical modernism." "This frequently cited book is as relevant now as at the time of its writing and this new edition will be invaluable for all those with an interest in the development of twentieth-century music.

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
