Ruth Crawford Seeger : a composer's search for American music by Judith Tick( )

26 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 2,544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruth Crawford Seeger (1901-1953) is frequently considered the most significant American female composer in this century. Joining Aaron Copland and Henry Cowell as a key member of the 1920s musical avant-garde, she went on to study with modernist theorist and future husband Charles Seeger, writing her masterpiece, String Quartet 1931, not long after. But her legacy extends far beyond the cutting edge of modern music. Collaborating with poet Carl Sandburg on folk song arrangements in the twenties, and with the famous folk song collectors John and Alan Lomax in the 1930s, she emerged as a central figure in the American folk music revival, issuing several important books of transcriptions and arrangements and pioneering the use of American folk songs in children's music education. Radicalized by the Depression, she spent much of the ensuing two decades working aggressively for social change with her husband and stepson, the folksinger Pete Seeger
Music in the USA : a documentary companion by Judith Tick( )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 2,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Music in the USA: A Documentary Companion charts a path through American music and musical life using as guides the words of composers, performers, writers and the rest of us ordinary folks who sing, dance, and listen. The anthology of primary sources contains about 160 selections from 1540 to 2000. Sometimes the sources are classics in the literature around American music, for example, the Preface to the Bay Psalm Book, excerpts from Slave Songs of the United States, and Charles Ives extolling Emerson. But many other selections offer uncommon sources, including a satirical story about a Yankee music teacher; various columns from 19th-century German American newspapers; the memoirs of a 19th-century diva; Lottie Joplin remembering her husband Scott; a little-known reflection of Copland about Stravinsky; an interview with Muddy Waters from the Chicago Defender; a letter from Woody Guthrie on the "spunkfire" attitude of a folk song; a press release from the Country Music Association; and the Congressional testimony around "Napster." "Sidebar" entries occasionally bring a topic or an idea into the present, acknowledging the extent to which revivals of many kinds of music play a role in American contemporary culture. This book focuses on the connections between theory and practice to enrich our understanding of the diversity of American musical experiences. Designed especially to accompany college courses which survey American music as a whole, the book is also relevant to courses in American history and American Studies." "The primary audience for this book is students in college courses in American music or in American culture, American media, and American history. The book will be of great interest to scholars in these areas as well, and will be a longstanding reference. The book will appeal to the general audience as well."--Jacket

Music for small orchestra (1926) ; Suite no. 2 for four strings and piano (1929) by Ruth Crawford Seeger( )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the late 1920s, before composing her landmark String Quartet 1931, Ruth Crawford had already found a strong and individual voice as an American modernist. This edition presents two important unpublished compositions from that period: Music for Small Orchestra (1926) and Suite No. 2 for Four Strings and Piano (1929). The style of these works, dubbed "post tonal pluralism," shows Crawford handling tonality as an option rather that a given and responding originally to a wide range of musical, literary, and intellectual currents-including the music of Scriabin, Cowell, Rudhyar, and Ruggles, the poetry of Carl Sandburg, and the religious-philosophical movement known as theosophy." --
