Arts Music Composition Composers C Coleridge-Taylor, Samuel
6
English late Romantic composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) was the son of an Englishwoman and an African physician from Sierra Leone. In keeping with the European nationalist music, he desired to do for African music what such composers as Brahms, Dvorák, and Grieg had done with folk tunes of their native lands. Among his associates or friends were the Americans Paul Laurence Dunbar, Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. DuBois. Notable compositions include the trilogy based on Longfellow's The Song of Hiawatha, African Romances, and Symphonic Variations on an African Air.
