The Lost Chord: June 6 - Further Pulitzer Surprises
The winners of this year’s Pulitzer Prizes will be announced on June 11. Tune in to sample music by past recipients, including William Schuman’s “A Free Song,” after Walt Whitman, the first piece to be recognized with a Pulitzer, in 1943; selections from William Bolcom’s “12 New Etudes for Piano,” honored in 1988; and Caroline Shaw’s extraordinary “Partita for 8 Voices,” celebrated in 2013. Shaw, the youngest recipient of the prize for music, was 30 years-old and a doctoral candidate at Princeton University. You might say it’s an hour of prized Pulitzer music, this Sunday at 10 pm.
