From January 1957 to March 1962 Columbia Masterworks in collaboration with the Fromm Music Foundation released a series of 9 highly acclaimed LPs in the Twentieth Century Composer Series with music by composers including Elliott Carter, Luigi Dallapiccola, William Denny, Leon Kirchner, Ernst Krenek, Benjamin Lees, Jerome Rosen, Ilhan Usmanbas and Ben Weber. Sony Classical - with kind support by the Fromm Music Foundation - is now properly documenting the meritorious cooperation between Columbia Masterworks and the Fromm Music Foundation with the release of a special 9 (+1) album boxed set, remastering the remaining 6 LPs with repertoire by Foss, Harrison, Killmayer, Kirchner, Krenek, Weber and Dallapiccola from the 2- and 3-track analogue tapes, and thus making this special repertoire available worldwide and in high resolution audio. The Fromm Music Foundation was founded by the late Paul Fromm in 1952. Since 1972, it has been located at Harvard University where it has operated in partnership with the Harvard University Music Department. Over the course of it's existence, the Fromm Foundation has commissioned over 400 new compositions and their performances. The Fromm Foundation has also sponsored hundreds of new music concerts and concert series, among them Tanglewood's Festival of Contemporary Music, American Composers Orchestra, and the Fromm Concert Series at Harvard University.
