Concertzender Live

Encouraged by Antonin Dvořák during his visit to the United States from 1892 to 1895, the Americans developed their own style and idiom within classical music, free from the European tradition.

Influences of folk tunes, church hymns, Afro-American gospels, blues and jazz and newly created rhythms were frequently used by American composers such as Charles Ives, Henry Cowell and Aaron Copland. In today’s broadcast of Concertzender Live Archive we’ll hear a mix of songs with this typically American classical Sound as it developed in the course of the 20th century.
