Notes & Reviews:

Before the premiere of his legendary political musical 'The Cradle Will Rock' and his famous opera 'Regina', Marc Blitzstein (1905–1964) produced striking chamber music that deserves a wider audience. Yet these scores, by the only American to study composition with both Arnold Schoenberg and Nadia Boulanger, remain unpublished and rarely played over the past 80 years. Other Minds is pleased to introduce these forgotten treasures, an unknown aspect of Blitzstein's genius.
