MUSIC IN THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY
Author(s):
Richard Taruskin

The late recollection is tinged with patronization, typical of “literate” attitudes toward the “limitations” of an oral genre. That was hardly Copland’s point of view in the 1920s. In trying to comprehend his decision to abandon jazz, it will be useful to compare the bad reception his jazz-influenced compositions met with the altogether different reception some seemingly similar works by another American composer enjoyed around the same time. What on the surface may appear paradoxical will on investigation prove revealing.
