[377] reference can only be to Rudhyar's "Creators and Public: Their Rela-
tionship," The Musical Quarterly 10:1 (Jan 1924), pl20-30, wherein

public, or (4) "the inert masses?zero."

 D 1924 (CD 277). HC made this work?his first major chamber work
and a milestone in his career?the only entry in his CD under 1923,
designating it for "small orchestra." That date can only represent one
of the earlier stages of its "completion"; indeed, the final version was
not achieved until 1956. But the earlier and better-known version,
the one published and first performed in 1925, probably was com-
pleted in 1924 and was "Dedicated to Blanche Walton," HC's foremost
patroness and adherent over the years.
