While recuperating from a recent illness, I had the opportunity to catch up on a little reading pertaining to musicology. One book I decided to read was Source Readings in Music History: The Twentieth Century, edited by Oliver Strunk (with the revised edition edited by Leo Treitler and Robert P. Morgan). The anthology provides essays and articles on 20th century art music, written by leading composers and critics from that era such as Schoenberg, Busoni, and Adorno. However, I found the essay penned by American composer Evan Ziporyn, titled "Who Listens If You Care?" to be intellectually irresponsible and of dubious taste.
"In Defense of the Individual,"
The Catalyst: Vol. 1
, Article 6.
