Interview with Primous Fountain III

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 53 min
Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA

Charles Amirkhanian talks with the African American composer, Primous Fountain III of Chicago, who traveled to the West Coast in 1972 to witness a performance of his “Manifestation” by the Oakland Symphony Orchestra. Also in the studio were Maestro Harold Farberman and Charles Shere. Fountain has had his orchestral compositions performed by the Chicago and Boston Symphonies, but has composed jazz works for Quincy Jones and rhythm and blues music as well. The most remarkable aspect of this composer is his age: he was born in 1949 and his “Manifestations” was composed when he was only 18.
