Music now is produced and recorded by the broadcasting services of the University of Alabama under a grant from the National Educational Television and Radio Center and cooperation with the National Association of educational broadcasters. This is the seventh in a series of nine programs demonstrating the accomplishments of the American composer at mid-century the music you are hearing on this series is the work of 16 composers resident and six southeastern states. It is music varied in style and content. Music expressive of American culture of the present day. The variety of American music is one of the best proofs of its authenticity and of the success our composers have shown in expressing the broad culture
of the United States. There is no American school of composers in the sense that to be classified as an American composer one must conform to any set of artistic criteria. And yet our music is unmistakably American invention. Rhythmic excitement its directness and freedom from formula and its exploration of many media of expression. Above all our music strives to reach a large audience is not confined in the intention of its composers to an appeal to a small group or click. It is music that intends to speak directly to the greater American musical public and that intention surely resides one of its profound districts making up this seven programme or two widely differing works. The first of these is the music for violin clarinet and piano by Margaret Farrelly. A student of Edwin Grushecky and Wallingford rigger Miss Fairlie as a native of Georgia. The work we are about to hear is in the Remove months marked the Volendam I still sew on
Allegro Joko So the style of the work is intense and rhapsodic and in the lento the composer creates a weirdly compelling effect by placing an iron plate on the strings of the piano. The resulting percussive effect is eerie but strangely expressive. We will hear now music for violin clarinet and piano. It will be performed by Julius hedgie violin iti Thompson clarinet and Charlotte Hadji piano. Yeah.

Largo and Allegro Depot is scored for flute oboe clarinet trumpet and by soon the work is light hearted and jocular for the most part except in the Largo which is more reserved and lyrical and the Presto and Allegro be VO especially the tone becomes decidedly farcical. It is a work that admirably continues the ancient tradition of true wind music. Let us hear then the diversity meant 0 4 5 wins by Sidney Hodkinson. It is performed by members of the Louisiana State
