Coleridge-Taylor: 24 Negro Melodies / Shaffer-Gottschalk

Album Summary

>Coleridge-Taylor, Samuel : Negro Melodies (24) for piano, Op. 59/1
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This major piano cycle can best be summed up in the composer's own Foreward to the published score: "What Brahms has done for the Hungarian folk-music, Dvorak for the Bohemian, and Grieg for the Norwegian, I have tried to do for these Negro Melodies. The plan adopted has been almost without exception that of the Tema con Variazioni. The actual melody has in every case been inserted at the head of each piece as a motto. The music which follows is nothing more nor less than a series of variations built on said motto. Therefore my share in the matter can be clearly traced, and must not be confounded with any idea of "improving" the original material any more than Brahms' Variations on the Haydn Theme "improved" that."
