The Lost Chord: May 19 - Lilacs Last

May 31st marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Walt Whitman.  We celebrate this most influential of American poets all month long with music inspired by his verse, from an array of international composers.  Tune in this week for two works indebted to “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d” – the Symphony No. 1, “Versuch eines Requiems,” by Karl Amadeus Hartmann and “Dooryard Bloom,” for baritone and orchestra, by Jennifer Higdon.  Whitman chants his song of “sane and sacred death,” this Sunday at 10 pm.
