Articles by and about composers, beginning with Charles Ives and including Edgard Varese, Roger Sessions, Aaron Copland, Walter Piston, Elliott Carter, Stefan Wolpe, and others.

This new series of Norton books, devoted to informed discussion of contemporary music, draws principally upon articles first published in Perspectives of New Music, which Richard Kostelanetz has described as "among the most consistently interesting magazines in America." The Perspectives books will comprise a repository of the clearest thinking and most serious writing about twentieth-century music, forming an essential addition to the libraries of both professionals and amateurs concerned with understanding recent developments.
