Piano Concerto in One Movement
Julia Wolfe
Her Story – Live Recording | World Premiere | Nashville Symphony Co-Commission

Dive into a Nashville Symphony with a dynamic program celebrating great women composers, past and present. Commissioned to celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment, Pulitzer Prize-winner Julia Wolfe’s Her Story promises to be a spectacular world premiere, featuring the stunning voices of the Lorelei ensemble. Florence Price’s Piano Concerto is a true treasure, fusing virtuoso drama and passion with melodies inspired by traditional spirituals and the “Juba dance,” an exuberant precursor to ragtime. And longtime Nashville Symphony friend and collaborator Joan Tower adds her own powerful artistic voice to this concert saluting 100 years of women challenging the status quo.
