Major Figures in American Music


Major Figures in American Music is the core unit of Oral History of American Music. It consists of approximately 800 interviews with composers, performers, and other significant musicians. The first subjects were those most fragile in terms of age and health, such as Eubie Blake, Nadia Boulanger, Aaron Copland, Harry Partch, Charles Seeger, Claire Reis, and Virgil Thomson. Among other senior composers interviewed during the OHAM's first decade were John Cage, Lou Harrison, Ernst Krenek, Leo Ornstein, and William Schuman. As OHAM proceeded, composers actively involved in their careers were included and have been updated periodically. To name a few: John Adams, David Del Tredici, Lukas Foss, Pauline Oliveros, Steve Reich, Ned Rorem, Billy Taylor, and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich. OHAM's program also includes oral histories with emerging young talents, with the plan to track their careers as they unfold in the future. In addition to interviews with primary subjects, the core unit includes testimonies from secondary sources about George Gershwin, Henry Cowell, Harry Lawrence Freeman, Percy Grainger, and Arnold Schoenberg.

Ives Project

The Ives Project was the first documentary oral history of an American composer. Interviews with sixty people who knew and worked with Charles Ives were conducted between 1968 and 1971, and this unit was the impetus for the founding of Oral History, American Music. Family, friends, neighbors, business associates, and musicians reminisce about one of the most significant artistic figures of the century. Some of the musicians are: Arthur Berger, Elliott Carter, Lehman Engel, Lou Harrison, Bernard Herrmann, John Kirkpatrick, Goddard Lieberson, Darius Milhaud, Jerome Moross, Dane Rudhyar, Carl Ruggles, Charles Seeger, and Nicolas Slonimsky. Charles Ives Remembered: An Oral History (Yale, 1974; Norton paperback, 1978) received the Kinkeldey Prize from the American Musicological Society in 1975. Excerpts from the taped interviews were used in a five record package, "Charles Ives 100th Anniversary" (1974) and in a film documentary, "A Good Dissonance Like a Man" (1977). The interviewees include:
