The generation of American composers who came of age in the 1920s are now generally acknowledged as seminal figures in the creation of a truly indigenous American art music. Quartet Romantic makes available for the first time on CD several important chamber works by four of these figures-Henry Cowell, Ruth Crawford Seeger, Wallingford Riegger, and John Becker-as well as an early work by Cowell's most famous pupil, Lou Harrison.
