Cyril Scott was an English composer, writer, and poet. He was essentially a late romantic composer, whose style was at the same time strongly influenced by impressionism. His harmony was notably exotic. Scott wrote around four hundred works, which include two mature symphonies, three operas, three Piano concertos,concertos for Violin, Cello, Oboe and Harpsichord, several overtures, four oratorios, as well as a mass of chamber music.
During the late 1920s and early 1930s Scott recorded several of his own pieces on Piano roll. Composed in 1908 for solo Piano, Danse Negre was recorded on October 4, 1928.
Danse Negre is a lively little piece with a performance time of approximately 2 minutes – a perfect addition to any pianists repertoire!
