Suzanne Flandreau: Florence B. Price's Orchestral Works 'don’t deserve the obscurity they have suffered'

[Florence B. Price]

On August 20, 2011 AfriClassical posted: “Florence B. Price's 'Symphony in E Minor' & 'Concerto in One Movement' on CBMR/Albany Records in Fall 2011.” The news was also added to the Florence B. Price page at, which features a complete Works List by Prof. Dominique-René de Lerma, Today we received a response from Suzanne Flandreau, Head Librarian and Archivist, Center for Black Music Research (CBMR), Columbia College Chicago:

“Bill: Thanks for posting the CBMR’s CD announcement. Those of us who had the absolute joy of hearing the Price symphony and the concerto performed live last spring can hardly wait for the CD. They are amazing works and don’t deserve the obscurity they have suffered up to now.” Suzanne
