Rain & Red Clay

August 10 @ 7:30 pm

For many of us, the land of our ancestors holds a special power. For the Afro-British composer, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, that fascination drew him to the music and culture of Black America, where his forebears had been enslaved. We present his luscious Clarinet Quintet alongside two of his fundamental influences: the European tradition of composers like Brahms; and Black American music represented here by Valerie Coleman’s Red Clay and Mississippi Delta, which uses blues riffs to create a woodwind quintet with a southern accent.

Program:
JOHANNES BRAHMS:Violin Sonata No. 1 in G Major, “Rain”
VALERIE COLEMAN:Red Clay and Mississippi Delta for Wind Quintet
SAMUEL COLERIDGE-TAYLOR:Clarinet Quintet, Op. 10
