THE FIFTIES
3.00 Music in the USA
From the mass appeal of the Broadway musical to the minority experiments of the avant-garde, American musical life was flourishing in the fifties. Not having to rebuild a culture from scratch in the wake of the Second World War, composers continued to plough their furrows, be they popular or progressive, conservative or radical. Sue
Knussen introduces a cross-section of American music from the 1950s in conversation with two of the rising stars of the decade - composers Milton Babbitt and Elliott Carter.
