The Pulitzer Prize-winning composer George Walker celebrates a majestic career spanning seven decades with an evening that features early, middle and the most recent of his compositions. Mezzo-soprano Patricia Green joins the Left Bank Concert Society for a performance of the powerfully evocative Poem, for soprano and chamber ensemble. The program also includes Walker’s early String Quartet No. 1; Dina Koston’s Duo in Two Parts, for violin and piano; and Johannes Brahms’ magnificent String Quintet in G Major, Op. 111.
The World Premiere of Walker’s "Bleu," for solo violin, will be performed by his son Gregory Walker at the pre-concert lecture at 6:15 pm.
