Exploring Music: American Masters V - The American Masters series examines composers who forged our Nationalist identity in the 20th century, and who continue to energize and influence classical music today. While we have had other series dedicated to Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber, and Duke Ellington, American Masters is our opportunity to spend time with a more diverse collection of composers. This fifth installment of the series focuses on composers born in the years before the First World War – musical trailblazers, such as Henry Brant, Lukas Foss, Robert Russell Bennett, Peter Mennin, George Perle, Ned Rorem, and Jerome Moross.
