Walker / Mozart / Rachmaninoff
Our virtual concert series opens with a performance of George Walker’s Lyric for Strings, written while the composer was a graduate student at the Curtis Institute of Music. Mr. Walker was the first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Inon Barnatan performs his own arrangement of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances for solo piano, and our string musicians have an opportunity to shine in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Divertimento in D Major.
Note: individual access links will be sent with order confirmation and again just prior to the concert. Following the initial concert airing at 4pm, the performance will be available on demand to ticket holders for one week.
This concert is made possible in part by the generous support of Harriet and Jay Vawter.
