After substantial initial success, William Dawson’s Symphony fell into decades of neglect, from which it’s only now emerging. Full of Spiritual melodies and African rhythms, the work is a brilliant and essential piece of American musical history. Joseph Schwantner sets Martin Luther King’s speeches to a soaring and luminous orchestral palate, and Beethoven opens with music of victory over oppression.
