Castle of Our Skins -- a collective of artists of all kinds dedicated to advancing Black artistry through music -- remembers Dr. King's legacy and his complicated life, and presents the most-performed work of an essential 20th-century American composer. Daniel Bernard Roumain's String Quartet No. 2 ("King") is a meditation on the private phone calls -- intercepted by the FBI -- between King and his mistresses and the women's roles in shaping the Civil Rights Movement. George Walker's Lyric for Strings is a poignant navigation of the space between pain and hope dedicated to Walker's memories of his grandmother, who had been enslaved. Her grandson grew up to be the first Black composer to win the Pulitzer Prize for music and emerged as one of the most-honored American composers of the late 20th century.
Artists:
Gabriela Díaz, violin
Mina Lavcheva, violin
