B1249. (KOUSSEVITZKY) HUGO LEICHTENTRITT. Serge Koussevitzky – The Boston Symphony Orchestra and the New American Music. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press, 1946. 199pp. Index; Photo; DJ.
"With the turn of the century, American music began to develop a language of its own, and when Serge Koussevitzky became the world-reowned conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra he made that language familiar to an ever-widening public both at home at abroad. This illuminating study of American symphonic music is focused, therefore, on the history of its presentation during the 1930s and 1940s by Dr. Koussevitzky and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.”
