Other Minds Festival:
OM 11, Concert 1: 02 “String Quartet No. 4, ‘Angelou’” by Daniel Bernard Roumain

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 26 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds

Composer and violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain presents the world premiere of his “String Quartet No. 4, ‘Angelou’" featuring the composer on electric violin with Bay Area string quartet Del Sol, and DJ Scientific sampling poetry by Maya Angelou. Based in New York and known to some as the "dread violinist" this young African American composer is as home with Bach as he is with be-bop improvisation, and cuts a unique figure in the cross-over classical world. He has composed for various American orchestras and arranged for Cassandra Wilson's big band, and his Lincoln Center workshops challenge young composers to write classical music with hip-hop beats.
