Program Notes

William Grant Still was inspired to write the work after taking a train trip through Kentucky in 1935.

After he wrote Blue Steel, Still received a commission for an instrumental work to be performed by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Eugene Goosens. He responded by producing two works for piano and orchestra, Dismal Swamp and Kaintuck'. Goosens chose Kaintuck' , and allowed Verna Arvey and another pianist to perform it first on two pianos at a Los Angeles Pro Musica concert. Howard Hanson conducted both works in Rochester.
