Ray Green (1908-1997) was an American composer, publisher, and arts administrator. Born in Missouri, he received his education in San Francisco. From 1935 to 1937 he lived in Paris, studying with Darius Milhaud. Married to the dancer May O'Donnell, he produced a large quantity of ballet music. He is best known for his tenure as Executive Secretary of the American Music Center in New York City (1948-60). The present copy suggests that he may have attempted an orchestration of Schoenberg's op. 19. Item #24953
