Ruth Crawford Seeger: A Composer's Search for American Music by Judith Tick
1997 | ISBN: 0195065093 | 488 pages | PDF | 29 MB
Ruth Crawford Seeger (1901-1953) is frequently considered the most significant American female composer in this century. Joining Aaron Copland and Henry Cowell as a key member of the 1920s musical avant-garde, she went on to study with modernist theorist and future husband Charles Seeger, writing her masterpiece, String Quartet 1931, not long after. But her legacy extends far beyond the cutting edge of modern music.
