Following his successful Woodwind Music of Black Composers, Horne now presents a work for the string music of Black composers. Organized alphabetically by composer, each entry provides information on his or her life and career and then details all works that include strings–as well as other information.

Following the pattern established with his pioneering work, Woodwind Music of Black Composers, Aaron Horne now presents a comparable work for the string music of Black composers. Composers from Africa as well as the Diaspora are covered in this, the most comprehensive work on the topic yet published.

Organized in alphabetical order by composer, each entry provides information, where available, on the composer’s life and career, and then details all works that include strings as well as information about commission, premiere, and composer bibliography and discography. The volume includes a string index, as well as a general discography and bibliography. This work should prove invaluable for scholars examining the impact of Black composers on classical music, opera, and ballet, and it will be equally valuable to those devising repertoire for teaching and concert purposes.
