Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor
Erica Peel Piccolo
Harberg Piccolo Concerto (world premiere)
Price Symphony No. 3
Commissioned by the Federal Music Project at the height of the Great Depression, Florence Price composed her Third Symphony in the midst of the Chicago Renaissance, a powerful backdrop for writers and artists including Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, and Margaret Bonds. While her Second Symphony remains lost, Price's engaging Third Symphony reflects her growth as a composer, taking more risks, adding modern techniques, and expanding emotional elements as compared to her more traditional First Symphony.
