Evening Masterwork: Florence Price's Symphony No. 3 in c-minor for January 4, 2023

Florence Price’s Symphony No. 3 is a work that takes more risks than its predecessors. Throughout the piece, Price employs a variety of unusual features, such as a highly asymmetric form, occasional dissonances for the sake of dissonance, yet also her typical use of African-American musical idioms. You can hear it tonight at 7: our Evening Masterwork on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
