: Dances in the Canebrakes

Florence Beatrice Smith Price University of Arkansas

In 1953, Florence Price wrote some dances for piano. She died unexpectedly shortly after that. One of her old friends turned her piano dances into a set of works for orchestra. On today's show, hear the world premiere of Dances in the Canebrakes, by Florence Price, orchestrated by William Grant Still.
