Book summary

"... Strickland's own deep involvement with the works of these composers [is] revealed by the questions and comments he poses in an appreciative, Paterian way. His profound pleasure in these works also leads him to scrutinize and challenge them intimately." Publishers Weekly

"This is an indispensable book about American music... " Fanfare

"... exhilarating... Any of the interviews in ┬ŁAmerican Composers will stimulate your curiosity and appetite."┬áHungry Mind Review

"... not only engaging, but also a useful representation of the major compositional styles of the 1980s and their corresponding practitioners." Notes

Philip Glass, Keith Jarrett, Meredith Monk, and eight other active American composers reveal a broad spectrum of musical personalities in these candid, in-depth conversations. Witty and articulate, their remarks convey the great vitality, diversity, and distinctiveness of today's American music.
