Florence B. Price's 'Symphony in E Minor' & 'Concerto in One Movement' on CBMR/Albany Records in Fall

Columbia College Chicago
The third issue in the series Recorded Music of the African Diaspora, due for release in Fall 2011, features premiere recordings of two works by Florence B. Price (1887–1953): her first symphony, Symphony in E Minor (1932), and her Concerto in One Movement for piano (1934). The score and parts for the concerto, which were lost, have been reconstructed for this project by composer Trevor Weston based on existing two- and three-piano versions prepared by Price. The works have been recorded by the Center's New Black Music Repertory Ensemble conducted by Leslie Dunner and featuring pianist Karen Walwyn. [Florence Beatrice Smith Price (1887-1953) is profiled at, which features a comprehensive Works List by Prof. Dominique-René de Lerma,]
