Over 40 years after its original appearance, CBS Records’ landmark Black Composers Series has finally come to compact disc. Made under the direction of conductor Paul Freeman and employing world class orchestras and soloists, these recordings originally appeared on vinyl between 1974 and 1978, providing rare exposure to 200 years worth of neglected music. Sony Classical has reissued these invaluable documents as a boxed set. To coincide with Black History Month, we’ll hear highlights from the 10-CD collection over four Sundays in February at 10 pm.
