Eminently qualified to take the bigpicture view he presents, Joseph Horowitz is a prolific writer on the social and cultural history of musical creation and performance, and artistic advisor to front-rank performance organizations and festivals. The final chapters of the book discuss what Horowitz refers to as "postclassical" music, offering a degree of hope that American music may even now be finding its authentic voice by breaking the barri- ers between cre- ators and performers, artists and audiences, serious and popu- lar music, acade- mics and practitioners.
