John Alden Carpenter

John Alden Carpenter

1876 - 1951

John Alden Carpenter's [musical] work in general has an impressionistic lightness, but ranges widely in expression from light and humorous to the poetic and moody, from jazz-inspired to patriotic, and from the popular to the non-Western. His ballet Skyscrapers was given at the Metropolitan Opera, but he is perhaps most famous for his great output of piano pieces and songs.
