Composer Note:
The composition is the result of a commission by Heifetz who desired to add an American concerto to his already stupendous repertory, and this was, of course, nothing less than a challenge. It raised up that question again as to what was really American music. To my mind, American music consists of ALL human emotions. Nothing less!

— Louis Gruenberg
