Abstract/Description: At the turn of the 20th century, many American composers became engaged in what is now known as the Indianist Movement. The movement began following published musical transcriptions and cylinder recordings of Native Americans by American ethnologists. Numerous American composers were inspired by the melodic material and composed works such as symphonies, operas, choruses, string quartets, piano solos, and art songs from the Native American melodies. This treatise will provide a background on the Indianist Movement in terms of the chronology of development, the personnel involved, and the means of and reactions to Native American melody harmonization. An in depth study of the text and music from Arthur Farwell's Three Indian Songs, Op. 32, and Charles Wakefield Cadman's Four American Indian Songs, Op. 45, will highlight the compositional style and harmonic approach by two of the highest regarded Indianist Movement composers.
