NPR Begins The Search For The Great American Symphony
"Throughout the summer, we plan to ask a variety of composers, conductors, critics - and especially you - to help us think about the state of American symphonic music. We're not out to crown the best American symphony, to decide whether Aaron Copland's Symphony No. 3 is more important than John Corigliano's Symphony No. 1. Instead we're wondering: Is the music still viable? Who writes symphonies in America these days? And who hears them? What relevance do they have in the American artistic landscape?" NPR 07/02/13
