Samuel Coleridge-Taylor with Jeffrey Green
Thursday 22 September 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, the independent historian will provide an insight in his life, using often overlooked documents to reveal something of the truth.
