John Malveaux: "On July 6, 1949 Florence B. Price composed a short and brilliant piece for piano solo titled Whim Wham." (Dr. Michael Cooper)

 Florence B. Price (1887-1953)
(University of Arkansas)


John Malveaux of MusicUNTOLD.com writes:

"On July 6, 1949 Florence B. Price composed a short and brilliant piece for piano solo titled Whim Wham. The title refers to a caprice or something gotten or bought on a whim, and the earliest autograph suggests that Price may have considered it a complement to the serenity of her recently published and recorded jewel Placid Lake".
