Vivian Fine was born in Chicago on 28 September 1913 to Russian and . Its intellectualism defeats shallow music-lovers. The book only contains two pictures of the composer but many examples of her music which is most welcome.

Vivian Fine was born in Chicago on 28 September 1913 to Russian and Jewish immigrants. They lived in poverty but the luxury in Vivian' s life was the piano that belonged to her mother. Fine did not follow in Sessions style and, sadly, did not write a Symphony or Concerto. She has written much chamber and vocal music and solo instrumental works. The book is honest showing the composer's quest both for modernism and her own style and how she embraced Schoenberg and other greats of the twentieth century.

Heidi Von Gunden has written the well-received The Music of Pauline Oliveros (Scarecrow, 1983), The Music of Ben Johnston (Scarecrow, 1986), The Music of Lou Harrison (Scarecrow, 1995), and The Music of Vivian Fine (Scarecrow Press, 1998) that received the 2000 ASCAP.

The books about Johnston’s and Harrison’s music are detailed studies about the composers’ use of just intonation, and the books about Oliveros and Fine contain analyses of their music and examine the issues of women composers.

Heidi C. She has written books on the music of Ben Johnston, Pauline Oliveros, Lou Harrison, and Vivian Fine.

A piano child prodigy, Vivian Fine (1913-2000) composed her first piece in 1926 at thirteen while studying harmony with Ruth Crawford. At age 16, her music was performed in Chicago, New York, and Germany. Unlike many prodigies, Fine's early brilliance persisted, and over the course of a 70-year career she became one of America's most highly regarded composers. Fine was a member of Aaron Copland's Young Composers Group and a participant at the first Yaddo Festival in 1932. Henry Cowell was an early supporter who published her scores in New Music. Although perhaps best known for her chamber music, Fine wrote in virtually every genre, including large-scale symphonic and choral works. Her earliest work is highly dissonant, followed by more tonal compositions during her nine years of study with Roger Sessions. After 1946 she returned to a freer mode of expression, which Wallingford Riegger described as "tempered atonality."Despite early recognition of her genius, Fine experienced obstacles as a female composer and often felt alone and isolated from the world of prominent musicians. Finally, at age fifty-six, she was appointed to the faculty at Bennington College. Her years there, surrounded by a faculty eager to perform her work, were some of the happiest and most productive of her life. In 1980 she was elected to the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. In 1983 her Drama for Orchestra was runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize.Renowned musicologist Heidi Von Gunden's concise, lively biography of Fine's life includes an insightful analysis of dozens of musical compositions. Useful resources include a chronology, complete catalog of works, discography, and bibliography. Impeccably researched, The Music of Vivian Fine is essential reading for anyone interested in Fine's music, and a great resource for students of 20th Century American music.
