Notes
-  Composers Milton Babbit, Richard Danielpour, Lowell Liebermann, George Perle, Ned Rorem, and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich join Istomin at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York to discuss and argue about the strong feelings and controversies surrounding modern contemporary music and the challenges that programming their music presents. The composers talk about their lifelong struggles to achieve recognition, but express pride in their collective status as representatives of the avant-garde. (Content)
