Homage: Women Composers and the Black Renaissance
Internationally recognized pianist Dr. Samantha Ege brings her technical mastery and determination to give marginalized composers their rightful voice to a recital focusing on the importance of the 20th-century Black Renaissance. The impact of the Black Renaissance, which unfolded in the United States in the first half of the 20th century, is just as significant as other classical music periods, but has been considerably less represented on stage. Throughout her performance, Dr. Ege will be, in the words of a BBC Music Magazine review, an ‘accomplished and absorbing guide’.
