Or, on a higher esthetic level, Wilfrid Mellers's judgments in Music
in a New Found Land (New York: Knopf, 1965), pl52: "Whereas
Ives's multiplicity is an aural realization of the multiplicity of expe-
rience, CowelTs multiplicity is a simple acceptance of the variety of
aural gimmicks that a new world offers the composer; and this is
equally true of CowelFs mildest works and of his most ferocious-
such as the middle-period Piano Concerto, which is the closest Cowell
approaches to Ives's grandeur, yet becomes, in its reliance on per-
cussive violence unrelated to line and structure, grotesque rather than
sublime. Even the grotesquerie has a kind of innocent charm."

 D 28 Apr 1928. HC made this work out of arrangements of movements
 1and 2 of Ensemble (no. 380) plus an adaptation of the piano piece
Maestoso (no. 429), its name changed to Marked Passages. He then
had "3 Pieces for Chamber Orchestra" (see no. 439)?but the set was
not called that. From some whim of inner logic HC called it first
Marked Passages (even as movement 3, quondam Maestoso, was called
the same) and, later, Symphonietta and finally Sinfonietta. To com-
plicate matters further, the tide Marked Passages was used in 1928
by several pianists for the piano piece Maestoso, either in its original
