The Music Program of the University at Albany’s Department of Music presents a collaboration between the Capital Trio and Musicians of Ma’alwyck timed appropriately for African-Americah History Month, which highlights the contributions of African Americans.

Entitled “Sweet Power,” the program features Negro Folk Songs in Counterpoint by Florence Beatrice Price, an award-winning pianist and composer who became the first African-American woman to have her work performed by a major symphony, and a Piano Quintet of Antonín Dvořák.

Price’s string quartet sets spirituals into classical style, including “Calvary,” “Oh My Darling Clementine,”  “Momma’s Little Baby,” “Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes” and “Swing Low Sweet Chariot.” The program fittingly pairs a work by Dvořák , a champion of the music of his homeland Bohemia who encouraged Americans to find their voice in their musical roots of spirituals, folk songs, and Native American melodies.

The performers for this program include violinists Hilary Cumming and Ann-Marie Barker Schwartz, violist Andrew Snow, cellist Petia Kassarova and pianist Duncan Cumming.
