How an unlikely discovery revived the work of Florence Price, a pioneering African-American composer
Originally published on April 6, 2018
You may not know her name, but Florence Price was the first black female composer to ever have her music played by a major American orchestra. She's now being honoured after a trove of her forgotten work was discovered in Chicago. We hear from Er-Gene Kahng, a violin professor who was so moved by Price's newly discovered music that she was compelled to record and perform them live.
