George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein and Samuel Barber reflect the beginning, middle and late part of American composition at the turn of the century.
Each of their works represent their own artistic development early on and foretell the excellence found in their more mature works. From Gershwin to Bernstein, to Barber, these historic composers collectively made a significant impact on what is considered today as traditional American music literature.
