William Dawson: 
Negro Folk Symphony

Description

Carlos Kalmar welcomes the dazzling young American virtuoso Zlatomir Fung to perform one of the greatest works for solo cello, Elgar's poignant Cello Concerto. The program includes The Bamboula by African-British artist Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, a man who, as a young composer, got a career boost from Elgar. His piece, The Bamboula, is inspired by the West African drum and dance of the same name. The concert closes with a symphony by William Dawson inspired by American spirituals.
