American music of the 20th century was a field of experimentation in all forms of musical language, exploring genres without restraint, opening the way to Americanism. Beach, Bloch and Schoenfield are part of this modern thinking through compositions nourished by popular music. Oxymores discovers 20th century America through trio works rich in urban energy with a touch of jazz that is the signature of the era for many modernist composers.
