The author of "New Musical Resources", Henry Cowell's works include innovative single movement vocal or instrumental pieces, 20 symphonies, five string quartets, and 8 suites of various kinds. He was also innovative in his use of instruments from different cultures (jalatarang, dragonmouths, Japanese wind glasses, the shakuhachi flute) and in this book, Nicholls brings together a symposium of articles and reminiscences dealing exclusively with Cowell.

Industry Reviews
