The History of American Classical Music: MacDowell through Minimalism

American classical music has come a long way in a short time. From the European-style music that was the norm at the end of the 19th century, a body of music has evolved that at the end of the 20th can be termed authentically and distinctively "American." This book takes an in-depth, panoramic look at this amazing variety of music, how it developed and the often fascinating people who composed it.
