A piano concerto from composer Elena Ruehr, "Quiet Streets" is an ode to our silenced cities during the time of shelter-in-place, capturing the unexpected beauty and tranquil melancholy of a deserted cityscape. The piano piece is accompanied by a virtual string orchestra and a saxophone. Selections from Margaret Bonds and Florence Price – two of the 20th century’s most renowned African American female composers – are also featured.
