The Daffodil Perspective Show 6th November 2018

This show features an in-depth look at early 20th century composer Florence Price, the first African American woman to have a symphony performed by a major orchestra. Also on the show is music from Dvorak, Copland and Tippett.

Album Of The Week

Nasty Women: Piano Music in the Age of Women’s Suffrage by Joanna Goldstein and Centaur Records.

Oh yeah – just the title alone demands a closer look. Love this album, it’s broad look at piano pieces by 14 American women composers in the first half of the 20th century. Something for everyone including late Romanticism, impressionism, American spirituals to ragtime, including works by Florence Price, Amy Beach and May Aufderheide.
