Brass Music of Black Composers: A Bibliography

Front Cover
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1996 - Music - 521 pages


Aaron Horne provides the most comprehensive guide to brass music written by black composers. He covers composers from around the world in the 19th and 20th centuries. Included in the book is biographical information; commission, duration, instrumentation, date of publication, premiere, publisher, discography for each piece; bibliographical sources; and an index which groups the music by numbers, medium, and ensemble.

This is the fourth volume in Aaron Horne's monumental effort to provide the most comprehensive guide to music composed by black composers. In this volume he covers composers from around the world in the 19th and 20th centuries, including William Grant Still, Ulysses Kay, Anthony Davis, John Coltrane, and other major figures from the world of classical, jazz, and popular music.

The main body of the book is divided into sections devoted to African, African American, Afro-European, and Afro-Latino composers. Within each section composers are arranged alphabetically; each entry provides biographical information as well as commission, duration, instrumentation, date of publication, premiere, publisher, discography for each composition. Backmatter includes a Brass Music Index which groups the music by numbers, medium, and ensembles; a title index; discography; and bibliography. As with the earlier volumes, this is an essential reference tool for anyone with an interest in researching and/or performing the music of black composers.

Today is Sunday, May 11, 2014. This is Irvin Elligan III saying Happy Birthday to author/composer Joyce Elaine Solomon. I was able to meet you in New York on my way to a Bill Evans concert at Carnegie Hall on Sunday May 5, 1974.
So Moses greeted by a friend who asked him why he did not say hello to "Irvin" Bush when spoken to. Moses commented, You'll have to forgive me, but the last time I spoke to a bush so long ago, it cost me 40 years in the desert.
Happy Birthday Joyce. Many happy returns. Yours sincerely Irvin. I registered at Hildegarde.
