John Alden Carpenter (1876-1951) was one of the wealthiest businessmen in Chicago, and also one of the most inventive and original American composers of his generation whose work was championed by Koussevitsky, Diaghilev and Bruno Walter. The first full length study of this major figure chronicles Carpenter's hectic artistic and business career, and examines the influences of popular music and jazz that played a vital role in the development of his distinctively Modernist musical style.
