[548]F In Schwab Auditorium, Pennsylvania State College, by the Symphonic
Band of the Institute of Music Education, cond. George Howard, HC
pianist, 31 Jul 1941. No. 617 also had its premiere on this program,
with somewhat different forces.
 M (a) Ink full score on 19p but lacking pl6-19; negative photostats
complete on 19p
(x) Copyist's ink parts, lacking oboe and piano parts
 C This is one of a number of works in which HC tried to characterize
different ethnic groups or individuals in music representing each. Here
the Hoedown presumably represents an American country dance, the
Taxim [sic] a Near-Eastern introductory, improvisatory solo, the Tola
an Indie rhythmic cycle, and the Chorale a Protestant chorale.
549 Set of Two Movements for Piano
(1) Deep Color. Largo espressivo, pl-7
(2) High Color. Allegro vivace (martellato), pl-7
 D HC to Percy Grainger, 19 Nov 1938: "Completed Deep Color and
High Color?the first is built partly on the same theme as the Air
from the Celtic Set [no. 543], arranged in a totally different way;
the other is all new." "Written for Georgia Kober" on cover/tide-page.
 F Scheduled, according to HC's correspondence, for Georgia Kober's
"recital at the Chicago Art Institute in January" 1939; no announce-
ment or review of the concert has been found in any of the Institute's
programs or three serial publications, which do announce many con-
certs there, or in Chicago music journals or newspapers. A Kober
recital elsewhere in Chicago during January was reviewed with no
mention of a Cowell piece.
 M Ink fair copy with separate cover/tide-page, each movement paged
1-7 (total 16). Laid in are reverse (mirror) negative and direct positive
copies made by the diffusion-transfer-reversal process.
 C On verso of cover in HC's hand: "This work is written on the legend
of the ancient colors of Ireland, which were deep purple and daz-
zling golden yellow. The two colors stand for the deep purple shadows
of the valleys, and the high-light of the sunlit tops of the hills of
Ireland."
