The Lost Chord: June 27 - Perambulating with Walker
On what would have been George Walker's 99th birthday, celebrate his legacy with an hour of his music, including “Lyric for Strings,” his most popular work, in its original version for string quartet, and “Lilacs” for voice and orchestra, which earned him the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1996. The composer, who studied piano with Rudolf Serkin at the Curtis Institute of Music, will also perform his Piano Sonata No. 2. The hour will conclude with the Gettysburg inspiration, “Address for Orchestra.” Take a stroll with Walker, this Sunday at 10 pm.
