Antonin Dvořák’s exploration of American music leads WCMS on its own exploration of pathbreaking Black American composers who rose to Dvořák’s explicit challenge to find a distinctly American musical voice. Infused with American folk and spiritual musical traditions, as well as the voices of Black American poets, the music on this program exemplifies that quest. That Dvořák heard one of those “distinctly American” sources in his assistant Harry T. Burleigh’s singing brings our journey full circle.
