Program Notes

Travel with CMS through North America and Europe in this program of distinct voices that embody both eras and cultures. Discover a picturesque work for violin and piano by Henry Burleigh, the song composer who introduced Dvořák to African-American spirituals; enjoy the vibrancy of a modern American composition by CMS’s own Bruce Adolphe; delve into the political turmoil of Russia and Hungary with Stravinsky and Dohnányi; and absorb the passion of Spain in Falla’s work inspired by popular melodies of his native country.

Fun Facts!

  • Henry T. Burleigh was an African-American composer and singer who studied with Dvořák. Southland Sketches was one of his few instrumental pieces.
  • Contemporary American composer Bruce Adolphe wrote Couple over 20 years ago for David Finckel and Wu Han.
  • Stravinsky wrote The Soldier’s Tale toward the end of World War I. It was originally written for small ensemble and later arranged as a trio so it could easily tour war-ravaged Europe.
