Collage New Music Ensemble:
The Music of Louis Gruenberg
MUSIC OF LOUIS GRUENBERG coverFrom perhaps the greatest recent American composer to have fallen into obscurity, the music of Louis Gruenberg (1884-1964) ignited the second quarter of this century with its bold blending of European traditions and uniquely American strains of jazz.

Several of Gruenbergĺs most important works are collected here in superb performances by New Englandĺs prestigious new music ensemble, Collage.  Gunther Schuller conducts.
