Editorial Reviews


?Roy Harris, born on February 12, 1898, in Lincoln County, Oklahoma, seemed at one time destined to be the standard bearer of American musical nationalism in this century. Upon his death in 1979, he left a substantial legacy of compositions, many of which manifest the symbols of Americanism (e.g., American folk tunes, Whitman's poetry, Lincoln's prose). Stehman has objectively drawn together a wealth of material in this well-organized volume based upon long scholarly and personal association with Harris. He has obviously studied carefully the 178 authentic works and brings to light numerous details of their performance history and various musical interrelationships. A lengthy bibliography of critical reviews with excerpts clearly outlines the Harris reception history and suggests that only a few works found essentially unqualified favor in early performances and that Harris's reputation suffered in his later years. Various other bibliographies (including references sources. scholarly writings, and general writings) in addition to a discography, works lists, and three indexes enrich this valuable resource, which is unlikely to be superseded. Upper-division undergraduate and graduate collections.?-Choice

Book Description

Documenting and organizing Harris's oeuvre is the essential concern of this book, and the catalogue of works and performances provides information on instrumentation, premieres, publication, and special aspects of each composition. Stehman also includes a complete discography and an extensive annotated bibliography.
