Distinguished Professor J. Peter Burkholder receives Deems Taylor Award from ASCAP

Congratulations to Distinguished Professor J. Peter Burkholder, who has received the Deems Taylor Award from ASCAP for excellence in his scholarly article “Music of the Americas and Historical Narratives”  [American Music (Winter 2009)] – see the article here.  The article argues that music of the Americas is part of the Western tradition; as soon as there are Europeans in the New World, there is a two-way exchange that has resulted in a transatlantic musical tradition, and composers from Monteverdi and Bach through Debussy and Stockhausen have been influenced by music from the Americas.
