The rediscovery of Florence Price's music has revealed one of the most significant bodies of work by an African American composer in the20th century. The variety of genres represented on this release place Price's immense artistic imagination on full display. The two Concert Overtures explore her engagement with spirituals, both episodically and coloristically, in music that embraces the somber, the poignant and the ebullient. Songs of the Oak is a tour de force of Hollywood-influenced storytelling while The Oak offers amore anxious, ultimately tragic portrait. Price's best-known work is the Suite of Dances-originally for piano it is heard here in the composer's full, sumptuous orchestration.
