"The new simplicity and American quality of Copland’s [Billy the Kid, 1936] set a pattern which many American composers, including Carter, would follow in the next decade. Carter’s simplified style appears in the First Symphony (1942, rev. 1954)... and the Holiday Overture (1944, rev. 1961), which begins like Piston and ends like Ives; typically, both works were considered difficult, despite Carter’s effort to write in the populist manner... Hints of Carter’s later style can be found in... the explosive counterpoint of the Holiday Overture." David Schiff and Mark R. Porcaro in Grove online. Item #25197
