The Wonder Years: American Music 1900-1950

Steve Millward

The first half of the twentieth century was characterised by convulsive change in American society, much of it driven by two World Wars. This was reflected in the complete transformation of the country’s music. Rural styles made their way tot the city, where Jazz became the music of the age. Classical composers began to stray from the European model, while the Broadway musical became an art form. Finally, as the 1950s approached, new ideas were germinating that would determine the future of pop music, rock and roll and soul.
