the young black American pianist, Nina Kennedy, visits both cities (Sunday 20, Glasgow/Tuesday 22, Edinburgh) with a rather more unusual programme. Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov will be familiar enough, but what about Myra Hess's arrangement 01 Bach‘s ‘Jesu, Joy ot Man's Desiring“? Orthe American composers Ulysses Kay and John W. Work? Like Miss Kennedy hersell, Work was born and grew up in Nashville, where he was a noted black composer, pertormer and educator. His ‘Appalachia‘ at 1945, written just the year after Aaron Copland‘s more Iamiliarwork oI similartitle, takes tolk tunes, jazz syncopation and generally popular music, but puts them within a more classical tramework. It is, in tact, the John Wesley Work Memorial Foundation which is making Miss Kennedy's recitals possible. Interesting too is Ulysses Kay, whose ‘Four Inventions‘ of 1947 have such disarming titles as ‘Big Bunch of Roses’ and ‘Fisherman's Hornpipe‘, written very much in the tradition of that great American composer, Charles Ives, but not until some 30 years atter Ives had given up composing.
