Componist: Henry Cowell

Henry Cowell is a marvelous composer, whose music is often forgotten, overshadowed by Ives’ innovative scores or by Antheil’s bombastic ones. But Cowell’s orchestral music is making a comeback, and a much-deserved one.
In this episode of American Highways, pianist Guy Livingston brings us a sneak preview, the first in an epic series on the complete symphonies of Henry Cowell.
