Relative to the composer's orchestral work "Ode to Consonance."
"Bernard Goodman have [!has] just gone over the 'Ode to Consonance' carefully for 'putting the cream on'... We heard the work last night and it was a fine sound & good success." Goodman will make corrections in red pencil and send the score to Harris's correspondent tomorrow with dynamic and tempi changes. "I think perhaps you have some good merchanize [!merchandise] here!"
Creased at folds; staple holes to upper left margin.
An American composer, "[Harris] was one of the most important figures in the establishment of an American symphonic music. His works reflect a broad historical and international frame of reference while also conveying a strongly nationalist stance through the influence of Anglo-American folk tunes and other materials relating to the American ethos." Dan Stehman and Beth E. Levy in Grove Music Online. Item #29572
