Roger Sessions: a Discography

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  04 February 2010


This discography includes all the gramophone records I have been able to trace which contain music by Roger Sessions and were issued before September 1978 for sale or for broadcast. If there are errors or omissions, I will be grateful to those who will notify me of them via the editor of TEMPO.

The compositions are numbered in alphabetical order. The dates of compositions are approximate: it is often difficult to determine when works by Sessions were begun. Some of the dates include a certain amount of ‘gestation’ and sketching while others may not.
