"The History of American Classical Music" celebrates a legacy built up from Colonial times to the present, containing riches unfamiliar even to sophisticated music lovers. Barrymore Laurence Scherer, a distinguished American author, leads the reader through an enthralling history, illustrating the importance of not only renowned names, such as Gershwin, Copland, Bernstein, Joplin and Sousa, but also those formally in the shadows, such as William Henry Fry and Alan Hovhaness. And, of course, we even step into Broadway for that most American step-child of opera: the musical. This development, tracked largely by key composers, is set against America's tempestuous history, putting neatly into context the achievements of the time. And with the words come 2 CDs of carefully chosen music to provide a uniquely rounded representation of his field. Furthermore, the purchaser of the book is given access to a dedicated website which offers even more music to listen to, as well as other bonus material. --このテキストは、ペーパーバック版に関連付けられています。

Mr. Scherer's writing style is engaging. While he clearly has a scholarly understanding of his subject, he speaks in laymen's terms with a passion for the material that cannot help but elicit an enthusiastic response. I plan to incorporate some of the music into my high school American Lit classes. I'd like to give my students a broader understanding of the periods that we study. Overall, this is a great resource, and I'm glad that it's a part of my library.
The author offers a clear writing style with historical events that shaped the artistic moment of a composer's life. Thoughtful and a find edition to my music book collection. I will likely purchase the hard copy...because it deserves a firm place on any musician's bookshelf.
