"In the Quarter of the Negroes": The Musical World of Langston Hughes

"In the Quarter of the Negroes" revels in the intense, sophisticated urbanscapes of the great writer and Harlem Renaissance leader Langston Hughes (1902-1967). Acclaimed baritone James Martin, who dazzled Copland House listeners at our 2012 holiday concert Hol’ de Light and new Wake Up Singin' CD, returns for this program, titled from a recurring phrase in Hughes's epic poem, Ask Your Mama. Pianist Michael Boriskin joins Martin in songs by John Musto, William Bolcom, Kurt Weill, Laura Karpman, William Grant Still, Dorothy Rudd Moore, and Howard Swanson, all set to poems by Hughes.
