Modern Music and the Tradition, Part 2 of 2

Following episode 257 (Sept. 1, 1985) about the status of classical music in the 1980s and the musical canon and its historical and contemporary shapers, Soundings presents a performance of the 1984 Kennedy Center Friedheim Award–winning composition, Symphony no. 2, performed by musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music. William Prizer joins the composer, Edward Applebaum, in a discussion about this symphony.

At the time of this interview, Applebaum was professor of music composition and theory at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Prizer, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1984-85), was professor of musicology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
