Florence Price (1887-1953) was a pioneering African-American composer who left an indelible mark on classical music with her ground-breaking works. Price overcame racial and gender barriers to become the first African-American woman to have her compositions performed by a major symphony orchestra. Her music, deeply influenced by her Southern roots and African-American heritage, seamlessly blends elements of traditional European classical music with spirituals, blues, and folk melodies.

The three solos I’ve selected for this collection highlight her highly descriptive style.
