Native American Inspirations

× Wednesday, October 16 2019 at 7:30 PM
Native American people were here long before Christopher Columbus, and they’ve had more influence on classical music than you might realize. For generations, the “Indianist” musical movement has mined Native American music and lore to fashion a musical signature for all Americans. Czech composer Antonin Dvorak, for one, drew inspiration from Native American musicians he encountered on his travels through the American heartland; Arthur Farwell undertook astounding explorations of Native American culture that paralleled Béla Bartók’s excavations of folk culture in Hungary. Experience it all in an evening presented by the PostClassical Ensemble, the Cathedral’s Ensemble-in-Residence.

The late David McAllester, a central scholar of Native American music, acclaimed this work for a “breadth and exaltation” that was profoundly inspired by “cosmic” indigenous music and ritual.
