“Lost or obscured are the big bands and the chamber ensembles and world music collectives. Lost are the cross-over hybrid masters whose work falls between genres. Lost are the young composers and instrumentalists who had the gall and the nerve to choose a path in sophisticated music in a post-MTV world. We’re missing music with movements and music of long durations with mingled ensembles. America doesn’t ignore this canon and its own musical heritage and ferment because it doesn’t like it. It doesn’t know it’s there.”
