"Douglas W. Shadle's book is a thorough and convincing survey of a completely neglected aspect of Americanist musicology: the composition of symphonies by nineteenth-century American composers. This is an invaluable and masterful piece of scholarship--a major contribution to our understanding of nineteenth-century music history." -- Katherine K. Preston, David and Margaret Bottoms Professor of Music, The College of William and Mary
