Synopsis

This catalogue highlights over 60 American musical instruments, most of them drawn from the collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Through their varied forms and functions, each embodies some meaningful aspect of American life: immigration, acculturation, nationalism, warfare, crafts and industry, entertainment and worship, tradition and innovation. These instruments have evolved to serve complex social purposes that continue to change. Even when silent, their designs, materials and decorations reflect the multifaceted culture of America.
