Editorial Reviews

?Preceded by a brief history of American music, this important book, a serious introduction to modern American music, is made up of biographical chapters on its leading exponents. . . . The biographies make stimulating reading, for nearly all that had uphill going. Integrity and sincerity is the keynote, along with courage. In each chapter the authors give the reader advice on what compositions might be acquired (on records) and what to note in studying them. It is a book for any serious music student, from young person to adult.?-Christian Science Monitor
