Notes & Reviews:

Johanna Magdalena Beyer (1888–1944) was born in Leipzig and moved to the United States sometime around 1924. After studying at various schools in New York, and with composers including Dane Rudhyar, Charles Seeger, Henry Cowell and Ruth Crawford, she began a highly productive and interesting period of composition that lasted from around 1932 to almost 1940. Beyer's music received very few performances and her work was almost completely overlooked during her life, and for about fifty years after her death. Beyer is one of the pioneering figures of the experimental strain in contemporary American music. Her work has long lain undiscovered and unperformed because of the lack of adequate performing editions.
