Composers: Charles Ives | Henry Cowell

Music by 20th-century composers.

Henry Cowell.

Today on The Last Century we focus on American composer Henry Cowell.

Alongside Charles Ives, Cowell is known for his often experimental and avant-garde compositions. In his later life, he often created works for a wider audience with simpler melodies, harmonies and rhythms. Today on The Last Century we share some of those later works.
