Feeling the pulse and race of classical music
Quite a bit of heat about Candace Allen’s new book Soul Music: The Pulse and Race of Music. So a little light is needed and hopefully this will be provided by the musician seen above. Because the good news is that John McLaughlin Williams - someone who has first hand experience of the pulse and race of music - will be reviewing the book for On An Overgrown Path. John’s review will appear later in the summer as he is currently heavily involved in producing a new performing edition of Karl Weigl’s Violin Concerto for a recording by other artists. More on Mahler’s forgotten assistant here.
