Florence Beatrice Price: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 4



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Florence Price was born in Little Rock, Arkansas and studied at the New England Conservatory,
but it was in Chicago that her composing career accelerated. The concert in 1933 at which her
Symphony No. 1 in E minor was premiered was the first time a major American orchestra had performed
a piece written by an African American woman. Influenced by Dvorák and Coleridge-Taylor, she
drew on the wellspring of Negro spirituals and vernacular dances, full of lyricism and syncopation.
The Symphony No. 4 in D minor demonstrates her tight ensemble writing, her distinct sense of
orchestral color, her Ellingtonian ‘jungle style’ language and her penchant for the ‘juba’ dance.
