Apotheosis of the Dance
November 19, 2022
We pair Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7—often called the “apotheosis of the dance”—with Florence Price’s Piano Concerto in One Movement. A world premiere by CU composer Ben Morris opens the program.
The first concert of the season spotlights Florence Price’s Piano Concerto in One Movement. As the first African American female composer to have a symphony performed by a major orchestra, Price was well known in the 1930s and 1940s. Her music is enjoying a much deserved resurgence in recent years, and Pro Musica is proud to present the regional premiere of this concerto with soloist Jennifer Hayghe. Its lively dance forms, including a juba, pair well with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, often called the “apotheosis of the dance.” The concert kicks off with the world premiere of The Hill of Three Wishes by Ben Morris, the 2021 CU Composition Competition Winner.
