Adagio cantabile from Cinnamon Grove, by Nathaniel Dett

by Stefan Brodd on July 14, 2021

Here is a beautiful piano piece by Robert Nathaniel Dett, part of his suite Cinnamon Grove, written in 1928.
The piece was inspired by words from the poem Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore:
When thou commandest me to sing
   it seems that my heart would break
with pride; and I look to thy face,
   and tears come to my eyes.
