Notes & Reviews:

If there is a musical counterpoint to the writers of the Lost Generation, it is surely New jersey-born composer George Antheil. His early career captured the spirit of a whole generation of young American artists who went abroad to complete their education, refine their tastes, live cheaply, and enjoy the far freer artistic and sexual milieu. For Antheil, this period (1922-1933) was marked by his friendships with famous literary and artistic figures - Joyce, Hemingway, Pound, William Carlos Williams, Cocteau, Satie, Breton, and Aragon. Their fascination with this brilliant, irresistible, and tireless young American composer was primarily inspired by his peculiar music: a personal fusion of American jazz and Stravinskys primitivism mixed with mechanical and percussive patterns.
