100 years of American modern song
'The Year's at The Spring', a song by Amy Beach, America's first professional female composer, was written in 1900. This collection goes from that point, right up to John Cage's haunting solo 'Experiences No. 2' and his vocal roller-coaster 'Aria'. The collection includes songs from across the 20th Century, by Paul Bowles, Charles Ives, Barbara Monk Feldman, Benjamin Britten, the Canadian composer Jean Coulthard, William Bolcom and the epic three-part chamber work by Leslie Bassett, 'Time and Beyond'.
