Notes & Reviews:

Born in New York City in 1909, Seigmeister studied composition with Nadia Boulanger in the 1920s, after which he returned to New York to initiate his career as a composer, writer and champion of the contemporary American music scene. He immersed himself in the expressive potential of the American folk-song, becoming one of a handful of native composers who gave rise to a distinctly "American" style of music in the 20th century.
