The Lost Chord: May 12 - The Mystic Trumpeter
May 31st marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Walt Whitman. We honor this most influential of American poets all month long with music inspired by his verse, including choral works, orchestral pieces, and songs. Whitman attained a venerable status here in the United States. More surprising, perhaps, was his impact on composers of the United Kingdom. Tune in to this, the second of four programs, for music by Gustav Holst, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Frederick Delius. Walk out… toward the unknown region, this Sunday at 10 pm.
