CSO Sessions Episode 14: Beethoven & Price


Two titans of classical music are paired for this emotion-filled concert. Florence Price, the first African American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, weaves familiar spiritual melodies into her technically challenging Five Folksongs in Counterpoint. Bookending this work are two chamber pieces by Beethoven: the humorous Duet with Two Obligato Eyeglasses and his dramatic sextet for strings and horns.

Premiered on Thursday, February 25, 2021
Available through Friday, March 26, 2021
