Notes & Reviews:

At the turn of the 20th century, American art music was actually German Romanticism practiced by New England composers. This now mostly forgotten music disappeared due to a combination of reasons. It my be difficult to imagine Beach and Foote living and composing at the same time as Copland, but in fact, they did.



Reviews

An American Mirage
The Mirage was where the talent went. Amateurish attempt at music.
