Dvořák to Duke Ellington : a conductor explores America's music and its African American roots by Maurice Peress( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Dvorak to Duke Ellington, Maurice Peress begins by recounting the music's formative years: Dvorak's three-year residency as director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York (1892-1895), and his students, in particular Will Marion Cook and Rubin Goldmark, who would in turn become the teachers of Ellington, Gershwin, and Copland. We follow Dvorak to the famed Chicago World's Fair of 1893, where he directed a concert of his music for Bohemian Honor Day. Peress brings to light the little-known African American presence at the Fair: the piano professors, about to be ragtimers; and the gifted young artists Paul Dunbar, Harry T. Burleigh, and Cook, who gathered at the Haitian Pavilion with its director, Frederick Douglass, to organize their own gala concert for Colored Persons Day." "Peress, a conductor, is himself a part of this story; working with Duck Ellington on the "Suite from Black, Brown and Beige" and his "opera comique," Queenie Pie; conducting the world premiere of Leonard Bernstein's Mass; and reconstructing landmark American concerts at which George Antheil's Ballet Mecanique, George Gershwin' Rhapsody in Blue, James Reese Europe's Clef Club (the first all-black concert at Carnegie Hall), and Ellington's Black, Brown and Beige were first presented." "Concluding with a look at Ellington and his music, Dvorak to Duke Ellington offers an engrossing, elegant portrait of the Dvorak legacy, America's music, and the inestimable African American influence upon it."--Jacket
