Composer of the Month: Florence Price.
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.
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.
