Samuel Coleridge-Taylor: 24 Negro Melodies
Kim’s recording of the complete Twenty-Four Negro Melodies Op.59 of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor is now available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube. You can also purchase the 2-CD set.
“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.”
Coleridge-Taylor’s celebration of melodies of both African and African-American origin are a profound addition to the late-Romantic piano repertoire.
