CHOICE Review

Kelly (Lafayette College) is among a new generation of music historians whose scholarship has importantly contributed to gender-related studies during the 21st century. This book significantly advances knowledge of female composers and their works. In contrast to those who focused on women who composed music in the Western art tradition from the Middle Ages through the early 20th century, Kelly takes an intimate look at composers whose works represent vast diversities in music from the mid-20th century onward. In interviews with 25 gifted women, Kelly demystifies the individual creativity of composers whose works reflect compositional commonalities and differences within contemporary art music. The interviews are as different as the genres in which these composers write: classical, jazz, stage, film, video games, and multimedia. Among those interviewed are Joan Tower, Alice Parker, Chen Yi, Hasu Patel, Pauline Oliveros, Svjetlana Bukvich, Pamela Z, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Libby Larsen, Winifred Phillips, Jeanine Tesori, and Emma Lou Diemer. Published as part of the series "New Perspectives on Gender in Music," this book covers a range of topics, from the role of women as composers, performers, and music teachers to personal experiences and inspirations and the creative process. It also includes humorous anecdotes and candid advice. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals. J. J. Leary-Warsaw Birmingham-Southern College
