The Lost Chord: September 2 - Perambulations with Walker

George Walker, the first African-American recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music, died on August 23 at the age of 96.  Walker graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied with Rudolf Serkin and Rosario Scalero.  He also studied at Oberlin (from the age of 14), the Eastman School, and in Paris with Nadia Boulanger.  We’ll remember this trailblazing artist through four of his compositions, including the popular “Lyric for Strings,” in its original 1946 version, and the Pulitzer Prize winner “Lilacs,” after Walt Whitman, this Sunday at 10 pm.
