Notes & Reviews:

Henry Cowell (1897-1965), in the introduction to the first edition on his prophetic "symposium" titled American Composers on American Music (1933), described features of contemporary American music and outlined categories of composers. The first group he introduced-"Americans who have developed indigenous materials or are specially interested in expressing some phase of the American spirit in their works"-might be taken as a historical framework for the composers represented on this recording. The tradition that Cowell saw emerging from the music of Charles Ives, Carl Ruggles, Charles Seeger, and others supported the work of a handful of iconic names-Cowell himself, also George Antheil, Stefan Wolpe, and Ruth Crawford. Their place in that tradition lies at the heart of this recording by Miwako Abe (violin) and Michael Kieran Harvey (piano). This program traces music written for violin by progenitors of this independent strain in American music from the earlier-century composers.
