This title sets the growth of American musical composition against parallel developments in American culture, provides a guide for understanding the music, and explores how the notion of the concert tradition, as inherited from Western Europe, was challenged and revitalized through contact with American popular song, jazz, and non-Western musics.

Carol Oja has been examining twentieth-century American musical culture for over two decades. Numerous publications attest to the breadth and depth of her interests. Her newest work is a seasoned scholar's understanding of one aspect of these larger explorations and a model of thorough research; the result is unquestionably solid. The title's verb "making" foretells something of the complex project Oja undertakes; modern music did not just happen in America, it had to be consciously shaped from a musical culture bound to nineteenth-century European traditions and forged from a national culture not fully aware of its own rich and original resources. The realization of this process required the efforts of dozens of people--composers, performers, patrons, teachers, and critics--over many years. Oja takes us inside the struggles and strategies, and invites us to witness the formation of modern American music.
