Roots / Randall Goosby
Randall Goosby presents Roots, a celebration of classical music by Black composers and inspired by Black American culture. This debut album is a homage to the pioneering musicians that paved the way for Goosby's generation of young artists. It features world premiere recordings of pieces by Florence Price, as well as looking to the future, opening with a new work by Xavier Foley.
This is selfless, stylish playing which – paradoxically – ends up by projecting the personalities of both artists with even more freshness and warmth.
