Abstract :

Florence B. Price's music, such as the Piano Concerto in One Movement, was given public exposure by the Woman's Symphony Orchestra of Chicago. This orchestra was begun in 1925, for the purpose of promoting classical music in a popular format. The concerto was composed in 1933 and performed by the orchestra in 1934. The orchestral arrangement of the concerto can be reconstructed from various manuscripts.
