Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) was trained in the violin at the Royal College of Music, where he later composed under Charles Villiers Stanford who conducted the first performance of Hiawatha's Wedding Feast, soon after taught and conducted the orchestra at the Croydon Conservatoire. Upon his arrival to the United States in 1904, he inspired to display the influence of African music debuting with the American poet Paul Laurence Dunbar. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor died of pneumonia at age 37, but his work was later endorsed by Sir Malcolm Sargent who conducted for ten seasons of a costumed ballet version of Hiawatha at the Royal Albert Hall and published with the Royal College of Music and British Library. Coleridge-Taylor's works are to this day inserted into recordings.
