Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0520077911, Hardcover)

Henry Cowell called Charles Seeger "the greatest musical explorer in intellectual fields which America has produced, the greatest experimental musicologist." This collection of Seeger's essays, together with Studies in Musicology, 1935-1975, constitutes a major selected edition of the work of a man who was an international figure in every sphere of music.
Both volumes contain deeply philosophical essays on subjects ranging over the entire musical spectrum. This second volume, compiled by Seeger's biographer, Ann M. Pescatello, contains several of his finest theoretical pieces, including the previously unpublished book manuscript, Tradition and Experiment in (the New) Music, a major addition to music literature.
In today's changing world of musicology, Seeger's ideas have never had a greater relevance. This new collection is richly rewarding for music scholars and students, composers and critics, educators and connoisseurs.
