Summary This is the first complete biography of Henry Cowell, one of the most influential figures in 20th century American music. A major musical innovator of the first half of the century, Cowell left a rich body of compositions spanning a wide range of styles. But as the book shows, his legacy extends far beyond his music. He worked tirelessly to create organisations such as the highly influential New Music Quarterly, New Music Recordings, and the Pan-American Association of Composers, through which great talents like Ruth Crawford Seeger and Charles Ives first became known in the US and abroad.
