The Indian Character Piece: Native-American Influenced Piano Works from the Early 20th Century
Stephanie Bruning, piano

The so-called Indianist Movement from around the turn of the 20th century generated compositions related to or based on the music of Native Americans. The Indianist Movement in music resulted from many factors, chief among them was the quest for a voice that was uniquely American. Enthusiasm for the “Indian Character Piece” died out, leaving hundreds of pieces collecting dust. This new recording from pianist and educator Stephanie Bruning brings these pieces into the spotlight again, or, in some cases, for the very first time.
