Sphinx Virtuosi by Kevin Kennedy
The musicians of the Sphinx Virtuosi—a Detroit-based chamber orchestra dedicated to increasing racial and ethnic diversity in classical music—perform exciting music by Xavier Foley and Jessie Montgomery, including her work Divided, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall. These dynamic musicians also perform favorites by Barber, Kodály, and Dvořák, as well as a rarely heard composition by African American composer Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson.
