Henry Cowell: American Mavericks Listening Room
As part of its celebration of American Mavericks, San Francisco Symphony has prepared a series of online listening rooms, in which you can listen to clips from key works from a range of iconoclastic American composers and join in with discussions taking place on the page.
The first of these presents Henry Cowell's Piano Concerto, which "tells us what a piano sounds like when forearm meets keyboard." Below is one of the excerpts from the concerto used in the listening room. View the further extracts and program notes here.
