June 1952
New Republic;6/30/52, Vol. 126 Issue 26, p23
This article analyzes the book "Modern Music Makers," by Madeleine Goss. The book deals with thirty-seven composers, all of them American, and most of them still alive. Each of them is represented by a photograph, a biographical sketch, and a comprehensive list of works. Some of the photographs are very funny, but the biographical sketches, which are caricatures at best, are not funny at all. The author has mercifully refrained from subjecting the music to the devastating treatment she gives the composers.
