The Lost Chord: Feb. 27 - Taylor-Made

samuel_coleridge_taylor_2__2_.jpg

Afro-British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) achieved much in a comparatively short life, attracting the attention and advocacy of Sir Charles Villiers Stanford, Sir Edward Elgar, and Sir Malcolm Sargent. His cantata Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast became a cultural phenomenon between the wars. Unfortunately, the composer never lived to see it, and his widow received none of the proceeds. Always in need of cash, he had already sold the rights for a mere 15 guineas. We’ll hear it, among our featured works, this Sunday at 10 pm.

Ross Amico is program host, and host of Picture Perfect which airs Saturdays at 6 pm and The Lost Chord which airs Sundays at 10 pm.
