Description: Still’s work combines Classical forms with jazz and blues idioms and was inspired by the rich tradition of African American spirituals. He hoped that his music would serve a larger purpose of interracial understanding, and this joyous, moving and hauntingly beautiful program –featuring all world premiere recordings – is infused with Still’s love of God, country, heritage, and even his mischievous dog Shep. Zina Schiff (violin), Royal Scottish National Orchestra; Avlana Eisenberg.
