Book by Tick Judith


Judith Tick's sympathetic and vastly detailed study of her protagonist's works, life and times already reads like a classic. (BBC Music Magazine, August 2001)

What Tick accomplishes here is quite staggering - she explores Crawford's personal and professional life through the lens of American social, historical, political, and musical history. She does all of this with a feminist sensibility, thereby making a major contribution to the field of women's studies, providing a model of how to write a female composer's life. (Canadian University Music Review)

A wonderful book, which will an inspiration to women musicians in many countries and languages. It will be of interest to many―not just women, and not just musicians or teachers or collectors of folk music. (Pete Seeger)

In a full-scale biography of an eventful life, Judith Tick cannot be expected to offer exhaustive critical analysis of this extraordinary music, though everything she says about it is worth the carrying. Tick's account of Ruth as an 'educational' composer convinces us - with the help of well-produced music examples - that Crawford deserves a place alongside Bartok and Kodaly ... Judith Tick, author of this great book, has qualities comparable with those of its subject, being clever, perspicacious, wide-eyed and open-eared, yet also 'plain', like Ruth Crawford and Aaron Copland. The book, cool yet committed, proffers the information one needs, remains scrupulously fair in discussing divided loyalties, never proselytises. (The Musical Times/November 1997)
