Florence Price’s renaissance

Nearly 70 years after her death, American composer Florence B. Price (née Smith, 1887-1953) is enjoying a formidable renaissance. With over 300 classical music compositions to her repertoire, spanning every genre except for opera, Price’s Symphony No. 3, The Mississippi River Suite and The Oak are emerging as classic Americana in style and routed in the African-American experience.
