Walter Simmons is a distinguished American writer about music. He has written a splendid book about the American composers William Schuman, Peter Mennin and Vincent Persichetti ("Voices of Stone and Steel"), which I read with enormous pleasure, and another on romantic Americans ("Voices in the Wilderness") which I have not yet read. He has championed the music of Arnold Rosner. Walter and I have communicated for some years. His website is http://www.walter-simmons.com/

Walter has now written an article for Musicweb entitled "Thoughts on Evaluating Unfamiliar Music". It makes for fascinating reading and I strongly recommend it to others. At the very least the article is thought-provoking and hopefully will provoke discussion.
