Three Spirituals for Violin, Viola, and Cello, arranged by Adolphus Hailstork
Adolphus Hailstork's (b 1941) is one of the foremost African-American composers working today. His style and output cannot be pigeonholed as one type of music--he has written in all classical genres and finds as much inspiration in European models as he does in African-American culture.
Hailstork’s ''Three Spirituals'' for string trio is the ''perfect storm'' as his inspirations from African-American and European traditions cross-pollinate. Hailstork’s elegant setting of We Shall Overcome is treated like a Bach chorale prelude, Kum Ba Yah is a meditation tinged with gospel harmonies, and Great Day is a no-holds-barred exuberant finale!
