- Charles Ives – Unanswered Question
- Florence B. Price – Piano Concerto in one movement – Maxim Lando – soloist
- Antonin Dvorak – Symphony No. 8
Living in the early 20th century, the music of African American composer Florence B. Price is an important rediscovery in classical music today. This is paired with another distinctive American voice Charles Ives and his enigmatic ‘Unanswered Question.” Then we hear Dvorak’s 8th Symphony, a composer, who also was committed to the music of his native country.
