Description: The first of the three Cameos of 1904 subtly refer to African music in its syncopated rhythms and chromatic harmonies while the remainder are closer to the Edwardian norm. The elegant waltzes (1909) are closer to Schubert than to the Ravel set which was to come only two years later while the five-movement Forest Scenes of 1907 are close to Germanic Romanticism; the nine-minute Moorish Dance (1904), the longest single movement here, is Coleridge-Taylor's most brilliantly written piano work. Waka Hasegawa (piano).
