News to start your week!

It’s been amazing to see so many headlines discussing the life and music of Florence Price!  Last week we shared the article by Alex Ross published in The New Yorker about the new recording of the recently discovered Violin Concerto.  This week the The New York Times also covered the story, and NPR provided a review of the album.  Have a listen to the work below!

Don’t miss this great article by musicologist Douglas Shandle on the systemic problems in orchestral programming.  Be sure to also follow him on Twitter.

Susan McClary, the “mother of New Musicology”, was interviewed at Van Magazine – where she was, in part, asked to give her opinion on the lack of representation of women in concert programming.

More success for Jennifer Higdon, as her Concerto for Low Brass was premiered by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra!   Here’s a review that shares the excitement!

And NPR provides a First Listen to Laurie Anderson’s latest album featuring the Kronos Quartet.  The work, Landfall, returns listeners to the power and devastation of Hurricane Sandy.  Learn more, and listen to the album in full, here.
