Notes and Editorial Reviews

Harmonies and counterpoints between Germany and America have marked the history of music on both sides of the Atlantic since the colonial era. During the 19th century musical life in the United States and Canada was often in the hands of bandsmen, orchestral musicians and conductors trained in Germany, and musicians born in North America completed their musical education by studying at conservatories in Leipzig and Berlin. In the early 20th century many composers in North America sought to free themselves from the European tradition, which meant challenging the hegemony of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Wagner. American born composers achieved varying degrees of separation from the European tradition by responding to the American soundscape. Read more This CD allows us to listen to American and German composers and composers who lived and taught in Germany and America, side by side to make our own comparisons. Read less
