Notes & Reviews:

Ruth Crawford Seeger was a pioneering figure of the American modernist movement. Her earlier mature works, such as the 'Sonata for Violin & Piano', show a Scriabinesque post-Romantic sensiblity. Her mastery reached its apotheosis with the 'Three Songs', a bold, original setting of poems by Carl Sandburg.
