Editorial Reviews

Review

"Shadle's Orchestrating the Nation offers a remarkable account of North American symphonic composers in the nineteenth century. [...] Just as Richard Taruskin has challenged the hegemony of the German canon by foregrounding Eastern European artists, so Shadle sheds light on repertories composed in the United States before 1900, as well as on the struggles of native-born musicians to emulate and resist the overwhelming influence of Beethoven and Mendelssohn. A tour de force of scholarship and cultural analysis." -- Susan McClary, Professor of Music, Case Western Reserve University

"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
