American music is the focus for this morning concert, with Dvořák’s famous American Quartet paired with less well-known works by US composers Elliott Carter and Florence Price. The consummate 20th century musician, Elliott Carter was born in New York in 1908 and died in the same city in 2012. He wrote of his cello sonata that “the cellist should play Schönberg and the pianist Stravinsky at the same time”. We round off the programme with a beguiling piano quintet by the brilliant African American composer Florence Price, whose work is regaining deserved prominence after several decades out of the spotlight.
