90.9WGUC - Clef Notes chats with Rachel Barton Pine

Bookmark and Share

One of our new favorite albums in the WGUC music library this fall has been Rachel Barton Pine's Blues Dialogues. It offers something so fresh, so interesting, so fun. We often get caught up with the "greats" in classical music – Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms – but fail to remember that there were countless others composing around them who have essentially slipped through the cracks of time. Rachel Barton Pine has committed the last 15 years of her life to researching music by black composers. Blues Dialogues explores just a sampling of this repertoire. WGUC had the pleasure of chatting with Rachel about this CD project. She told us the scoop on how the album came to be.
