  • August 22, 2008 Sonata in E m by Florence Price

    The sonata is excellent - beautiful, I can see why Florence Price won an award for this piece. The only issue is that the Schirmer edition (which may be the only edition out there) does not have ANY fingerings. Be prepared to spend the bulk of your time in the beginning...

    just getting fingerings in the score. But the music alone is fabulous. I can't wait to perform the whole sonata in recital.
