Here's a collection of terrific American music from the turn of the 20th Century. From the syncopated ragtime majesty of Scott Joplin, to the powerful and dramatic marches of John Philip Sousa; from the imaginative melodies of George Gershwin, to the influential stylings of Igor Stravinsky, it's all here. Produced specially for the High Museum of Art and the Detroit Institute of Arts, this CD will inspire pride in the American creative spirit.   Running Time:  62:24
