Otto Karolyi (au). Explores the rich traditions of 20th-century American music. Traces the history of popular folk songs, Negro spirituals, psalms & hymns which together created an independent music with a distinct character. Discusses the inventiveness of Charles Ives; popular styles such as Gospel, blues, ragtime, jazz & Tin Pan Alley; & composers who drew on these influences. Charts the success of giants such as Copland & Cage, & redefines the importance of lesser-known figures such as Cowell, Partch & Earle Brown. Discusses the Modernists, such as Babbitt, Carter & Crumb; & Minimalists such as Young, Riley, Reich, Glass & Adams. Looks at South American composers such as Villa-Lobos, Chavez & Kagel. Indispensable!
