Title

  • Preconcert Talk: George & Gregory Walker

Summary

  • Pulitzer Prize-winning composer George Walker discusses his music with his son, violinist Gregory Walker, and Nicholas A. Brown of the Music Division. Gregory Walker performs the the world concert premiere of George's Bleu, for unaccompanied violin (2012). Gregory's performance marks the debut of the Library of Congress' "Oberlin Betts," and exact copy of the Library's "Betts" violin by Antonio Stradivari, Cremona, 1704. This pre-concert presentation took place in conjunction with a performance of Walker's String Quartet no. 1 (1946) and Poem, for soprano and chamber ensemble (1986), based on T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men" by the Left Bank Concert Society.
