Coleridge-Taylor received a formal education, rooted in the European musical tradition, but early in his career he became aware of his black cultural heritage and was at pains to acknowledge it in his music. Donald Macleod introduces the suite inspired by his encounter with the black poet Paul Laurence Dunbar, and two works which put Coleridge-Taylor on the map - the Four Characteristic Waltzes and his Ballade in A minor.
