Composer Portrait: The Music of Valerie Coleman: Imani Winds
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Symphony Space  •  7 April 2014
 

Imani Winds perform a programme of music by the Louisville, Kentucky-born composer Valerie Coleman (who is also flutist of the ensemble) including four world premieres. The programme presents an array of Coleman's unique compositions which incorporate jazz, Afro-Cuban traditions, and various distinct sonorities found within the African continent. Works performed include Rubispheres for flute, clarinet and piano (a character sketch of the lower east side club scene of Manhattan); The Dawes Roll for soprano and piano (a reconciling of the cultural and historical duality of African-American and Native American families in the Midwest); and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes (a uniting of the sounds of Native American and African cultures). Also on the program is Coleman's Afro-Cuban Concerto for Wind Quintet and her Portraits of Langston for flute, clarinet, piano and narrator. Da Capo Chamber Players join Imani Winds for two of these works.
