“TRY THIS OVER ON YOUR STEINERT” 
60 
Temporary New Yorker'. 
I FOUND this in the Times last Sunday: “Henry Cowell, a young Ameri 
can played his own compositions in Vienna ... let us hope they don’t think 
all Americans play that way.” jh once asked “how long will composers hold 
on to the octave?” Henry Cowell, young, Irish, is the only other I have heard 
directly ask the same question. He has asked, thought, and composed beyond it 
and now wishes for a new beyond-piano to play. He has been composing since 
he was eleven, studied and knows Chinese music, knows American jazz . . . 
The Greeks had only five, the Church used the Octave and five, Bach used all, 
Beethoven fought three years to get recognition for the use of Octave, five and 
three. Is this the period of “revolution” in Art? in Music? Years ago Margaret 
Anderson asked the musicians, ask them again, Little Review. 
As a point of information Henry Cowell’s Three Irish Legends: The Voice 
of Lir, The Hero Sun, The Manaunaum: Dynamic Motion, and Exultation are 
published by Breitkopf and Hartel. His unpublished Antinomy is ranked with 
the others, as his best.
