25% off African Heritage Symphonic Series - Vol. I
For the birthday week of Afro-British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (August 15, 1875 – September 1, 1912), pictured on the album cover above, our free download is the finale of his Petite Suite de Concert for orchestra. Composed the year before his early death, the piece was the popular composer’s response to requests for works in a lighter vein. The piece was a success in this regard as it became championed by Sir Dan Godfrey (1868–1939), something of an English counterpart to Arthur Fiedler in America. The Suite’s final movement, La tarantelle frétillante (“the sparkling tarantella”), is particularly lively and is based on an earlier monodrama of Coleridge-Taylor’s. The spirited performance is by the Chicago Sinfonietta, conducted by Paul Freeman, from their album, African Heritage Symphonic Series, Vol. 1 (our featured CD of the Week, 25% OFF this week only).
