First heard this composition on ClassicFM two months ago while just driving around in the L200 with no particular place to go.

Symphony No. 1 by American composer Florence Price.

At the time I first heard it I was sure it had an American sound about it and when the name and description of the composer was announced that confirmed it for me.

From Youtube: 

Till Eulenspiegel.

Hi Frank,  thanks to Youtube here's another composition by another African-American composer who like Florence Price should have received more recognition. 

 William Dawson's "Negro Folk Symphony" composed 1932 and premiered in 1934.

Till Eulenspiegel.
