The three articles contained in this issue of American Music had their origins in a panel session at the 1998 annual conference of the Sonneck Society for American Music, held in Kansas City, Missouri. Under the heading "Reaching beyond the West: Asian Resonances in American Radicalism," participants sought to explore the impact of Asian ideas and ideals on twentieth-century American radical music. The session consisted principally of three papers-the bases of these articles- among which were interspersed complementary performances of rep- resentatiVe piano pieces. The performances, given by Brian Marks of Baylor University, were of the Japanese Sketch from Oriental Impressions by Henry Eichheim (1870-1942); the second of the Three Paeans by Dane Rudhyar (1895-1985); three movements-Rain Jhala, Third In- terlude, and Jhala of the Waterfall-from the Shalimar Suite by Alan Hovhaness (b. 1911); and the conclusion to Act III of Satyagraha by Philip Glass (b. 1937), in the composer's own transcription. As convener for the session, I provided contextualizing remarks for the pa- pers and performances, and also chaired an extended concluding discussion among panelists and attendees
