How an unlikely discovery revived the work of pioneering composer Florence Price
Originally published on April 6, 2018
You may not know her name, but Florence Price was the first Black female composer to 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. Violinist Er-Gene Kahng was so moved by Price's compositions that she was compelled to record and perform them live. She joined us to shine a light on the pioneering composer's life and music.
