Breaking A Color Barrier

A Comprehensive Reference Guide to Recorded Works by Black Composers Available on Compact Disc is compiled by Richard Greene. At this web site you will find varied information including a comprehensive Black composer discography. Currently, more than 130 black composers have been recorded on compact discs. The 800+ listed works are primarily instrumental, ranging in format from solo to orchestral. This reference guide also includes the recording label and the catalog identification number. Overall, more than four hundred classical music composers of African heritage have been identified. Recorded offerings, therefore, represent only a small subset of this total creative output. A bibliography and webliography is also part of this resource.
