Negro Folk Symphony Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

'My music tastes like cod,' said Edvard Grieg, referring to the salty Norwegian folk melodies that permeate his work. He has a kindred spirit in the African-American William Dawson. “I hope the audience hears that only a black man could have written this,” he said of his Negro Folk Symphony (1934) – inspired by spirituals, West African rhythms and the history of 250 years of slavery. A revelation.
