Axiom travels back to late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century America and the composers who helped shape classical music in this country. The works of Arthur Foote’s String Quartet No. 2 is an acknowledgement of all those composers who brought Germanic Romanticism to the United State. Amy Beach, on the other hand, shows a generation of composers who used chromaticism and modernism to find a distinctly new path forward. Finally, the program concludes with a work of William Grant Still who championed the voices of Afro-American, Afro-Cuban, and Central American folk musics and incorporated those into his compositions.
