Ellie M. Hisama

Gendering Musical Modernism: The Music of Ruth Crawford, Marion Bauer, and Miriam Gideon
(Cambridge, 2001; 198 pp.)

book cover imageWeaving history and musical analysis, Hisama explores the work of three significant and fascinating American women composers of the twentieth century by employing a form of analysis that links musical characteristics with elements of the composers' identities. Written in a way that the general reader will find compelling but which will fully satisfy the specialist, Gendering Musical Modernism answers many questions about the relationship of music to gender, and contributes to those analytical works attempting to explain musical language itself. Ellie M. Hisama is associate professor of music at Brooklyn College and The Graduate Center and is director of the Institute for Studies in American Music at Brooklyn College.
