To mark the birthday of composer Henry Cowell, today’s Caturday pic comes from the Henry Cowell Papers in the Music Division of our Library for The Performing Arts. The image provides a telling glimpse of Cowell — who composed the song “Because the Cat” — hard at work at his home in upstate Shady, N.Y. Cat fanciers will be pleased to note how the composer can focus on his work and still be accommodating to his feline friends. But are Cowell’s charges a-mew-sed by his latest piece? Sure doesn’t look like it. Thanks again to NYPL’s own Jeremy Megraw, who continues to uncover purrrfect Caturday gems from our collection. Happy Caturday!
