Lunchtime Talk: Samuel Coleridge-Taylor
Thursday 25 May, 1.00pm-2.00pm
The London-born composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) has been the subject of biographies, articles, web sites, CD booklet notes, a novel, and entries in encyclopaedias. Yet he remains elusive as a person, misunderstood as a musician, and a victim of the innocent prejudices of commentators. Jeffrey Green, independent historian, will provide an insight into his life, using often overlooked documents from BCA’s collection to reveal pieces of the truth.
