Sergio Mims: Tuesday June 12 on WHPK, Hear Violin Concerto of Jose White

Jose Silvestre de los Dolores White

Sergio A. Mims writes:

I wanted you and your listeners to know that on Tuesday June 12 on my WHPK-FM classical music show I will be broadcasting a rare recording of the violin concerto by the Afro-Cuban composer and  violinist Jose Silvestre de los Dolores White (1839-1918). Written in 1864, it was first performed in 1867 with White as soloist but it wasn't until 1974 that the work got its American premiere at Lincoln Center in New York

The recording is the only recording of the work made which is now sadly out of print. In the performance Aaron Rosand is the violinist with Paul Freeman conducting the London Symphony Orchestra.

My show in on every Tuesday on WHPK-FM Chicago 12-3 PM (U.S. Central Time) and can be heard locally at 88.5 FM and live streamed worldwide on whpk - home  Also on the show will be Mozart's Piano Quartet  in G minor and Rossini's Messa Di Gloria.
