Abstract:

This is the first full-length study of the distinguished American composer and teacher Ruth Shaw Wylie (1916-1989). It is based on her music, her writing and interviews, and the observations of her colleagues, students, performers, critics, friends, and family. Musical analysis, score examples, and a forty-page catalog of her works and performances chronicle her consolidation of American neoclassicism and avant-garde experimentation in her own personal style. ... She earned a PhD at Eastman in 1943 and established her career as professor of composition at Wayne State University. ... In 1969 she retired from teaching and moved west to the Rocky Mountains to enjoy nature and wilderness. ... While music was Ruth Wylie's main passion, she was also skilled in painting, lapidary, and other crafts. She loved competitive sports and games. She won trophies in many sports and in chess. ... In 1985 she wrote, "I have always felt a desire and need and curiosity to find out how much I could achieve with the potential given me with my mind and body. To me that was why I was created. That was what I was supposed to find out."--Jacket.
