Rain & Red Clay

Johannes BrahmsViolin Sonata No. 1 in G Major, “Rain”
Valerie ColemanRed Clay and Mississippi Delta for Wind Quintet
Samuel Coleridge-TaylorClarinet Quintet, Op. 10

For many of us, the land of our ancestors holds a special power. That fascination drew the Afro-British composer, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, to the music and culture of Black America, where his forebears had been enslaved. This program presents Coleridge-Taylor’s luscious Clarinet Quintet alongside two of his formative influences, the European tradition of composers like Brahms and Black American music. The latter is represented by Valerie Coleman’s Red Clay and Mississippi Delta, which uses the blues to create a classical woodwind quintet with a southern accent.
